Water Play Wednesdays - come dressed to get wet & wild!

Children should come to school dressed in their bathing suit underneath their regular clothes. Parents should send a towel and water shoes (no flip flops as they are a safety hazard and slippery when wet) for their child to use during water play. Separate shoes for water play are required as children may not be on the mulch without shoes. Their shoes will get soaked during water play, so a dry pair is needed for each child to wear after water play is complete. Sunscreen must be applied in the morning before coming to school. If you would like us to reapply after nap, please complete a medication form and supply us with sunscreen for your child. Sunscreen will be kept in the sunscreen bin in your child's classroom. Please remember to label your child's towel and sunscreen with their first and last name. Thank you!
