Toy library “Aixaldes”
The toy libraries promote game offering the children a comfortable and safe space and the advice of qualified professionals.
The toy library “Aixaldes” – local word that means spark – is located in the street Ceferí Rocafort S/N. The room of 136m2 is split in 6 areas: soft area, symbolic game area, building games and puzzles area, board game area and creative workshop.
The space is designed following the Montessori method, focused to satisfy children’s needs instead of adult’s ones. It is decorated with soft colours and simple, wide and tidy decoration.
Our methodology is based on freedom. Spaces, time and activities are thought to favor the game. We also propose directed activities and workshops of free choice to the children. We aim to facilitate and guarantee quality game time both as an entertaining activity and a right of childhood, to ensure an optimal, healthy and happy growth.
The service is addressed to the children from 0 to 12 years. Children younger than 4 y.o. should be accompanied by a responsible adult all the time they spend in the toy library.
