Children will be required to wear a basic uniform including a St. Thomas Preschool t-shirt or polo. This uniform shirt must be wore everyday to school, unless special dress days are scheduled. Uniform shirts can be recycled and will be re-sold for a small fee. Please bring your used shirts to the office and also feel free to ask about our current stock of recycled shirts.
Children can wear any bottoms they wish (shorts, pants, and skirts). If girls wear skirts, please have them wear shorts also. Children love to run, jump, climb, and turn upside down. In addition, they are involved in painting, digging, water play, and sand on a daily basis. Children are not required to wear smocks when they paint although we do have them. Even though we use fabric friendly products, your child’s clothes may be soiled or even stained. When the weather turns cool, warm clothing is also needed, especially for early morning temperatures on the play yard.
Shoes must be worn at all times. Tennis shoes are best but, a solid buckle or strap sandal, buckle shoe with a rubber or composite sole that grips is acceptable. Crocs are acceptable and encouraged. We ask that your child not wear party shoes, flip-flops, and no shoes with slippery soles please. Your child’s activities could be limited if improper shoes are worn. If we experience your child being limited to play due to shoes we will asked that your children not wear the shoe to school.
