Northern Beaches Baby Marketplace

Thinkers.inq LIFE is our way of giving back to the community. Thinkers.inq LIFE is an NSW registered charity, set up to make a difference in families and early education settings.

The Northern Beaches Baby Marketplace is our first formal initiative, which we are very excited about. Our dream is to create a ‘marketplace’ where all families can benefit, either by giving or receiving quality baby goods, clothing and accessories.

The Baby Marketplace is really for everyone with a baby. However, if you are under significant financial duress or a healthcare card holder you are welcome to come and select goods to support the care of your young family. For others who are able to give, a donation would be welcome to support the work of Thinkers.inq LIFE.

Another way the Baby Marketplace is helping our community of mums is through supporting mothers in shelters and refugees as their needs arise. These two groups are so grateful for any thoughtful and respectful help, so it is exciting that the Baby Marketplace can be there in a small but important way.

OPENING TIMES: The Northern Beaches Baby Marketplace is open every Wednesday from 10.30am-2pm at 321 Mona Vale Road, Terrey Hills. Just come to Thinkersinq Preschool (at the same address) and we can point you in the right direction of the Baby Marketplace.

DROPPING OFF QUALITY BABY GOODS: As the Baby Marketplace is an arm of  Thinkers.inq Preschool quality baby goods, clothes and accessories can be dropped off from 7am to 6pm five days a week.Screen Shot 2018-03-12 at 11.22.32 am

AN INVITATION TO GIVE: We invite any and all families who no longer need their quality baby clothes, accessories and furnishings to visit us at the Northern Beaches Baby Marketplace and leave your donations so we can create a repository of quality goods for families who are in need.

Testimonials

'We absolutely love your centre and have nothing but praise for you all. Starting a new place brings with it some fears particularly with separation anxiety, but each day we have had no problems with drop-offs. We thought our daughter would be upset over separation again, but she and her brother are happy to go with no tears at all. That is amazing and shows the comfort and kindness you all show them.

The "word on the street" is what an amazing preschool you have, and I promise that we are adding to that with praise for all that you do.

Since sending our 3-year-old son to Thinkers.inq it has been wonderful to see his progress, they create a really positive environment for the kids! The learning strategies have supported his development and it is a pleasure to see his confidence and enthusiasm grow week on week. He is always excited to show and share with us the day’s activities. A great team that have created delightful surroundings accompanied by an excellent healthy food menu. We feel fortunate to be part of the Thinkers.inq family.

I remember the sunny evening we visited Thinkers.inq. A space of possibility: colourful, creative and inspired. We absorbed a crafts corner with easels and brushes, a ‘corner store’, wooden furniture, cute picnic tables ready for pint-sized picnickers. Further inspection revealed the outdoor amphitheater, the organic gardens, fruit trees, handmade puzzles and high grade, integrated technology. No heavy reliance on plastic toys and ‘babysitting’ here!

..I then heard about Thinkers.inq and from the first moment there I knew I had found what I was looking for our son. The family environment and warmth, the resources available, the inquiry based programming, the space and use of it and to just top it off the amazing healthy no ‘nasties’ food focus...
