Dress Standards

Uniforms are not required for our Preschool, Pre-K and Transitional Kindergarten Students.
Children should wear washable, comfortable, sturdy clothes - preferably play clothes. Paint, glue, colored chalks, water and sand are examples of materials available to the children. Accordingly, these materials may be worn home from time to time. The children do wear smocks for art activities and the Pre-School classrooms use washable paints and materials.

Clothing that is easy to manage encourages independence and self help. Many toileting accidents are prevented if children can unbutton or unbuckle pants and belts without a struggle. Three year old children should not wear belts or overalls.
For safety and insurance reasons, we ask that children NOT wear sandals, slick-soled shoes, "Crocks", boots, or "dressy" shoes. Tennis shoes are recommended. Long dresses are also dangerous for little girls. Shoes with Velcro closing are acceptable.
All jackets, sweaters, coats and hats must be clearly marked with the child's name. Some children may wear very similar clothing, and this makes it easier for the teacher to match the clothing to the child.
