What is a daycare without toys? It's probably a daycare without children in it. Kids start to learn at a very early age and they learn through play activities and games. It teaches them to sing, dance, share, wait for their turn, fall in line and so many other basic things that they carry on through adulthood. An important character in these play activities is of course toys and games.
Toys must be always present when setting up daycare system and facility. So when picking out toys for kids the primary factor to consider is the child's safety. Do not try to cut expenses in the expense of the children's safety. Buying cheap toys can be pretty hazardous as this can easily be damaged especially with the rough handling that kids will certainly do at such a young age. Broken parts may be swallowed or even create sharp edges that may cut a child which you certainly want to avoid.
Opt for toys made of wood for they last longer, sturdy and not that easily damaged so it is safer for the children. Make sure that the paint or finish of these toys does not contain harmful chemicals because children have a compulsion to bring toys to their mouth and taste or bite them providing hazardous to their health.
Children most of the time can express themselves more when they are playing and this naturally just help them be more outgoing and sociable. That's why toys are pretty important especially in children's play activities.
