During the fall and winter months, we ask that children arrive dressed in specific clothing to keep them warm and dry and ensure a positive experience in all weather conditions. Proper layering truly is the key to keeping kids happy and warm in winter weather!
Please make sure your child is not wearing cotton. Cotton absorbs moisture and stops insulating, which will leave your child feeling cold.
