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.
Children clothing is very important at the center. Think of your child’s comfort – and provide simple clothing free of fastenings. Think of the messy activities – and provide clothing that is dirtyable. Think of our playground – and provide clothing that is sturdy. Think of our changeable weather and provide warm cover-ups. Finally, think of our collection of unlabeled, unclaimed clothing – and label everything. PLEASE no Power Ranger or other clothing that promotes fighting. EDS is not responsible for children’s belongings including hair clips, jewelry, and clothing.
