Toys and Games at School

While we understand that it is natural that children wish to carry familiar toys with them and to show their friends items they consider precious, it has been our experience that bringing toys from home to school can create difficult situations for our staff to manage. Having toys at school can often causes conflict between peers that they are unable to cope with or resolve amicably. Children have difficulty sharing a special toy, and other children may feel upset or anxious when someone else has a special toy and they don’t.

For this reason we would ask that children do not bring toys or games from home. If students bring toys to school they will be asked to put the toy away in their bag.
