We request the child come in clothing that is:
Soft, comfortable and made of natural, breathable fibers
Can get dirty
Can be easily managed by the child during toileting - stiff jeans with difficult zippers and snaps are discouraged. We want children to feel confident & competent as they build their autonomy.
Shoes that children can take on and off themselves- children remove outdoor shoes and put on slippers for indoors
Rubber soled outdoor shoes that they can remove and put on themselves. Velcro closures or toggles work very well
Rain boots are required for mud play outdoors
Clothing that is logo, licensed character and marketing free. We want your child to be seen rather than the marketing message on their shirt. Our school is a media/marketing free zone. Children are bombarded with marketing images everywhere they go and our school is a bit of a rest from all the visual noise.
Clothing that is weather appropriate. The following guidelines can be helpful:
Under 75- sweater or sweatshirt
Under 65- Long pants, tights or leggings and a tucked in shirt with sweater or sweatshirt with hat or hood.
Under 55 - Coat, warm hat that covers the ears and gloves. Three layers- under shirt that is tucked in, pullover and coat.
Sunhat on sunny days.
