Uniforms

Guidelines

Early Childhood

Our toddlers and two-year-old students should wear comfortable clothing in which they are able to move freely and are able to engage in developmentally, age appropriate movement. Please be sure to dress your child appropriately in response to weather conditions. Additionally, please include a sweater or light jacket in your child’s backpack daily. Early childhood students regularly play outdoors for important gross motor development and MUST wear tennis type shoes with rubber soles. The toddler and two year old dress code is flexible with one exception, PLEASE NO LIGHT UP OR FLASHING SHOES. Light up shoes are a distraction and a safety hazard. If you are uncertain or have questions, please call the school prior to any purchase.
