Earthplace Preschool Policies and Procedures

Toys from Home

We ask that children leave toys at home. In a group environment the introduction of children's own toys can cause complications with the process of learning to share. This is a major developmental goal for preschoolers, and they are able to master it more successfully using the items  at school. It is, however, one of the reasons we have show and tell,which offers children an outlet for bringing to school something special that is then shared in a structured, successful manner.

This does not include "loveys" such as special blankets or stuffed animals that children use to help them transition to new environments. These are always welcome at school.
