Dress Code & Personal Possessions
As the children work within the “dressing frames” in practical life and watch other children managing their own clothing, their skill and desire to be independent increases. It is important that all indoor and outdoor clothing be chosen with this goal in mind and that you encourage independence at home.
Please have your children dress in practical clothes that they can manage on their own. Pants with elastic waists are preferred until they can manage more difficult fastenings. Overalls are suitable only if the children can fasten and unfasten them independently. Check shoe laces to see that they are long enough and have tips.
Be sure shoes have non-slip soles that are safe for running. Boots, ah boots…..we strongly recommend shoe boots (which fit directly over the socks) since these seem to be the simplest for children to manage by themselves. Your child may keep a pair of slippers at school to wear after taking off his/her shoe boots. Boots that fit over the shoes should be big enough to slip on easily. Plastic bags over shoes may help children to get boots on and off by themselves. Please label all outer clothing with your child’s name and attach mittens to their coat sleeves.
No umbrellas or long scarves.
