All children need to have 2 full sets of extra clothes in their cubbies. This includes tops, bottoms, undies and socks. Children should also have an extra pair of shoes and an extra sweater or jacket. In addition, children who use bibs, burp cloths, pacifiers, etc should have extras just in case. Remember to label all of your child’s belongings. It is the only way that the caregiver has to know which red sweat shirt belongs to who and can insure that you child’s things are returned to you. Please remember to replace your child’s extra clothes as they are used and/or they outgrow them so (s)he will always have them when needed. If your child does not have extra clothes when needed, you will be required to pick up your child. (S)He may return to school when there are extra clothes available and the child is wearing clean and dry clothing.
Parents are required to supply the diapers and wipes that their child needs. Caregivers check diapers approximately every two to two 1/2 hours. This means that your child will need about 25 diapers a week. All diaper changes are marked on the diapering chart by the changing station or their personalized developmental plan. When your child is running low on diapers or wipes, a note will be sent home that you sign. Caregivers try to give parents advance warning when supplies are getting low. If you have not resupplied your child’s diapers after receiving your notice, you will be called either to bring what is needed immediately or to pick up your child until you are able to bring in more supplies. Children will NOT be accepted if they are out of diapers/wipes. If you have borrowed diapers from EDS, those diapers will need to be replaced in addition to bringing a new supply for your child.
