Diapers are to be provided in adequate supply by the parent of any child not yet toilet trained. Wipes are provided by the Center.
All children should be dressed in seasonable, washable, comfortable play clothes allowing them the comfort and freedom to participate in all activities. Once your child is approaching the Preschool level, clothing should include zippers, fasteners, and buttons he or she can learn to self manage. Sturdy shoes or sneakers should also be worn.
The children are brought outside to play as often as possible so it is important that your child is dressed appropriately for the weather and season. During the winter, hats, mittens, boots, and snow clothes are needed for cold weather outside play. If your child wears boots to school, please send along a pair of street shoes to be worn indoors.
A complete set of seasonable clean extra clothing (underwear, socks, shirt, and pants) is needed in the classroom for your child in case of spills, tears, and bathroom accidents. The extra clothes will be kept in your child’s cubby. They should be changed every few months to accommodate changing seasons and growth spurts.
Please be prepared to provide clean bedding at least every other week (sheet, blanket, and pillow). All bedding will be sent home on alternate Fridays for cleaning to be returned on the following Monday.
Diapers, clothing and bedding brought to the Center should be labeled with your child’s first and last name.
