Can I save all the data from my locked Android, before factory reset?

I have an LG Nexus 5, its screen is locked by my kid for 2 days, and I don't know the password. I have gone to many of the mobile store keepers they are suggesting factory reset and in that case all the data will be vanished. Can you please suggest how could I save my data before factory reset. I do not understand the way, kindly define it in an easy way
