Toys from Home

We ask parents/guardians to leave their children’s toys at home or in the car. Sometimes it’s difficult to share favorite toys and there’s always the chance that it may be broken.

You will be notified in advance if there will be a special “sharing” time. If you have a book that may be of interest to all of the children, we appreciate your sharing this with the class but ask that it be left for a few days. The Center has found that action figures, guns, swords, and other types of toy weapons in the classroom tend to be disruptive and present a concern about safety. Ina group setting, they appear to stimulate aggressive behavior. For these reasons, they are not allowed at the center.
