With summer now here, we all try to dress to best survive the hot weather. Clothing and footwear become skimpier. We ask for your help in keeping your child injury-free by dressing them in sneakers or sturdy sandals. Backless sandals and flip flops are particularly hazardous and should not be worn. We do a lot of running and climbing and your child’s feet need support. Thanks for your help!
There is not enough room in our refrigerator for your child’s lunchbox. We recommend blue ice to keep your child’s lunch cold.
All children can also use the protection of sunscreen. It’s a great idea to make it a part of your morning dressing routine. For a small fee, we will refresh your child’s sunscreen after nap.
