This is actually something I think quite a lot with kids of my own. How to have camera/lenses handy and safe at the same time. I often have body + lens on a ~1,2 m sideboard, high enough for kids not to get to it and rest of the lenses inside the sideboard or camera bags not to collect dust.

I would not store lenses on the floor because of the dust, even if there were no kids around.
