Dressing for Daycare

When dressing for daycare, please keep a

few things in mind…

~ Outdoor play is a BIG part of our program. Children MUST have appropriate clothing for outdoor play available EVERYDAY no matter what the temperature/weather is.

~We get messy. EVERYDAY. Kids spill. They chuck paint. They wear their spaghetti sauce proudly. DO NOT send your child in clothes that you expect to
be sent back clean.

~ We play. HARD. Kids wear through their clothing quickly. Accidental rips and tears happen. Again, DO NOT send your child in clothes that you do not want ruined.

~ Things get lost. With a house full of same sized little people, occasionally your child may be sent home in the wrong clothes. DO NOT send sentimental clothing. Label everything. If something shows up missing, I will make every effort to locate it for you.


~ We are NOT an episode of Toddlers & Tiaras. Your child will NOT be judged based on the label in their shirt. I promise to not to judge you as a parent if your child wears Garanimals instead of OshKosh. Feel free to purchase your childs clothes for daycare at yard sales
or local thrift shops. (Hey...it's where I get mine!) 
If you have somewhere to go after pick up, bring a nice set of clothes to change your child in to before you leave.  

Your childs day is full of learning, exploring, wonder, and excitement. They learn best through hands on play. Hands on play IS MESSY!

When your child is up to his elbows in paint, he’s not worried about his shirt sleeves being stained. More then likely, he’s wondering how much you are
going to love his work.

 So, don’t let a dirty shirt put a damper on the wonder and joy of your little ones childhood.  Hang his picture on your fridge proudly. And buy an extra stain stick or two. ;)
