Children should be dressed in play clothes that are comfortable, washable, and suitable for all activities, both indoors and outdoors. Parents are encouraged to dress children in closed-toe, rubber-sole shoes to prevent falling and slipping. No flip-flops or Crocs can be worn on climbers.
All children need to have at least one extra set of clothing appropriate to the season that can be kept at school. All clothing should be marked with the child’s name.
Rest times are observed in all full-time programs. Although not all children nap, a quiet, restful period is essential to their well-being. Parents are required to provide a cot sheet and small blanket for children in our full-day program. These items will be sent home at the end of each week to be laundered and returned on Monday. Infant/toddler bedding is kept at the center and laundered daily by staff. Please make sure all items are clearly marked.
The Child Development Center provides a rich variety of developmentally appropriate materials, toys and games for the children. We would prefer that children leave personal items at home, with the exception of sleeping toys. It is difficult to be responsible for personal items as they can be easily damaged or misplaced.
