Childcare centres to ban toy guns and weapon-shaped Lego

The Australia Childcare Alliance NSW has reportedly announced plans to place further restrictions on the use of warlike toys, such as replica swords, guns, and even Lego in childcare centres.

President of the Australian Childcare Alliance NSW Lyn Connolly told The Daily Telegraph, that zero tolerance is the norm for violent behaviour and weapons.

“Early childhood education and care centres believe in exploration, not expiration and in development, not destroying,” she said.

The move comes after child psychologists claim there is currently no evidence to suggest a link between playing with toy guns as a child and committing acts of violence as an adult.
