Wearing uniforms can improve learning by reducing distraction, sharpening focus on schoolwork and making the classroom a more serious environment thereby allowing students to perform better academically. Wearing uniforms give students a sense of belonging. It teaches children to take pride in their appearance and prepares parents and students for elementary school, where they most likely will continue to wear uniforms.
Children in our three, four, and five olds classrooms are required to wear uniforms DAILY. However, children in our two year old classrooms are NOT required to wear uniform. Uniforms can be found at most local department stores. Uniforms may also be ordered on-line through multiple department stores. It is important that children come to school appropriately dressed and in uniform at all times. Uniforms must be in good repair (no tears, missing buttons, broken zippers). Keep in mind that occasionally, clothing can become stained as children need to feel free to explore and experiment.
Please understand that if your child is in violation of the dress code, you may be called to bring a uniform to the Center in order for him/her to participate in the program. Continued infractions of this dress code may result in suspension or termination of services. Your support of the uniform dress code in the classroom is appreciated.
*During the Summer Program children are not required to wear uniforms.
Our young men will wear standard navy blue pants or shorts with a light blue polo, oxford or turtleneck shirt. T-shirts are NOT appropriate uniform.
Our young ladies will wear standard navy blue pants, shorts, jumpers, skirts, skorts, or dresses. Tights, shorts, or leggings MUST be worn underneath. Either a light blue blouse, polo shirt or turtleneck shirt must be worn. Tank tops and T-shirts are NOT appropriate uniform.
Children are required to wear well fitting, closed-toe shoes at all times. Shoes that do not fit well may result in injury. Tennis shoes and rubber-soled dress shoes are recommended. Velcro closure shoes are preferred as they will avoid accidents from untied laces. Opened toe shoes, sandals, crocs and slippers are NOT allowed.
Uniforms must be in good repair (no tears, missing buttons, broken zippers).
Keep beads, barrettes and bows to a minimum. They are a choking hazard.
Children should not wear expensive jewelry. Teachers and staff will not be responsible for lost items.
During winter months, please remember to dress your child with appropriate winter clothing, such as, hats, gloves, and scarves.
