Swap Meet | Child Care Provider Item Swap

Child care providers are invited to join Trying Together on December 14 for “Swap Meet,” the first-ever share event for regional child care providers. Take this opportunity to find what you need and to get rid of what you don’t need.

About

We all have something we need and many of us have something we can offer. The more we can provide for each other locally, the more sustainable our programs grow. “Swap Meet” is a fun opportunity for programs to connect, socialize, and share. Participants will enjoy music, munchies, and more!

Rules for Listing Items

During the registration progress, participants will provide Trying Together staff with a “WANT” and/or a “HAVE” list. These lists will be placed in a central location. Staff will be sorting the swap items into two main areas – “Free” and “For Barter.”

Accepted Used Items

Participants may list any clean, gently-used learning materials, classroom furniture, and play equipment. Examples of these items include:

    • books,
    • dramatic play clothes,
    • kitchenware,
    • theme kits,
    • program supplies (tools, power strips, electronics, wall art, etc.),
    • classroom furniture,
    • gross motor equipment,
    • toys (games, puzzles, LEGO bricks, etc.),
    • and art supplies.

Things to Keep in Mind

When listing items, be sure to clearly state the type, style, and quantity of the item. Describe the size of the item as well as the material from which it’s made.

Please note that Trying Together reserves the right to inspect all merchandise and to refuse or return any item. All materials and equipment must be suitable for children. Swappers shall conduct themselves in an orderly manner at all times. Unless you request otherwise, unclaimed items will be donated to local resale shops.

If your program is interested in participating, complete the registration form. Programs must register by Friday, November 29, 2019.
