My 3 year old is in pre-school, not daycare. He has a truck that is HUGE that he loves. This morning he cried wanting to take it and I told him no, I told him that it's school time and he can play with it later. He has a problem being told no and I am working hard with him to follow directions.
Last week we had this issue with another truck. I was told by the helper (not teacher) that he can bring it. I know my son and he will not share and have a feeling that this truck would be the source of l0ts of issues for his teacher.
Do you let your child take toys to school? I have an older kid in elem. school and kn0w that this is a no no, so I assumed that this is not okay.

My son LOVES his cars. I mean seriously in love with his toy cars. He attends a preschool and it was written in the parent handbook that no toys are to come to school. We let him take one toy on the way to school in the car but he must leave it in the car when he arrives at school. When he gets picked up his toy is waiting for him. We initially had to coach him and give him a pep talk about leaving his toy and going into the school. He has had no problem, especially since this has been the routine from the very beginning. He used to kiss his toy goodbye and then go off happily. Now he just places his toy next to the car seat and climbs out. It takes time but he will get used to not bringing anything if you practice it every day.
