Yes, these are Noble False Widows, Steatoda nobilis. Not something to worry over but I still wouldn’t want a toddler to handle one. You can reduce the number of spiders you find in your home by sealing cracks around floors, doors, windows, foundation etc., vacuum everywhere and empty the canister outside.
