Toys and Articles to Share
Frequently, children want to bring toys to daycare. For several reasons, we discourage this practice. Activities are planned for children, as you will find below, and toys from home tend to get in the way of children participating in daycare experiences. Sometimes, items are lost or broken and this is disappointing to the child. They sometimes have trouble understanding why the other children want to share the “special” toy. You can bring something for them to sleep with if the child insists, but only under the understanding that the item will be put into their cubby until naptime and put back in after naptime. We do plan special days for sharing special toys such as “Show and Tell”. We ask that if your child brings a video to share with his or her class that it be rated “G” making sure it is appropriate for his/her age group.
