Daycare Wish Lists

Here at Normanview, we are always looking for “new to us” items that we can incorporate into our programs. We want our center to be a beautiful, home-like environment for your children to enjoy while they spend the day with us. It is always a treat for us to receive new toys for the daycare, and if you are cleaning out your home or playroom, please consider us if you have the following items:

  • Legos
  • Blocks of any kind
  • Books (both board books or soft paper books)
  • Dolls/Babies
  • Little People or animals
  • Toys made of natural materials (clay, wood, cloth, etc.)
  • Puzzles
  • Card or board games
  • Scissors
  • Plants
  • Old art supplies (paintbrushes, paint, glue, glitter, paper, doilies, yarn, felt etc.)
  • Extra pants or tops (for when we have accidents)
  • Large shirts for paint shirts
  • Throw rugs or pillows
  • Old artwork for us to display
  • Old picture frames (wooden or otherwise)

Of course, we will take most donations, but if you are looking to get rid of any of those specific items, we will gladly take them off of your hands!

If you are wanting to donate items to the center in lieu of fundraising, please consider any of the following items:

  • Unopened/new sunscreen or bug spray (for sensitive skin)
  • Kirkland brand unscented wipes
  • Vaseline, baby powder, Zincofax, etc.
  • Assorted sizes of diapers or pull ups
  • New blankets for children’s naptimes
  • Sheets for our sleep mats (24x48x2 inches)
  • Kleenex
  • Band-Aid brand bandages/Children’s polysporin
  • Touques, mittens, neck warmers or (used) boots for winter outdoor play

During the summer months we are working on a few different gardening and growing projects. We would be happy to receive any of the following items:

  • Pots/planters
  • Dirt
  • Bone meal or non toxic fertilizer
  • Round-up for the alleyway

Please do not feel required to bring any of these items in to the center, or that we cannot operate if we do not receive donations. Donations only enhance what we are already able to do, and we can provide a richer and fuller program for our children. If you would continue to fundraise please be on the lookout for our Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter fundraisers!
