FAQ’s

Is there a dress code?

Your child should have indoor, comfortable shoes that differ from their outdoor shoes (no light up, or large animal shaped shoes/slippers). Shirts are to be solid white or ivory; and in cold weather, a navy sweater or vest is advisable.  Bottoms/dresses/skirts are to be solid navy blue or tan brushed cotton/twill pants: denims or sweat pants are not an option, and as such not allowed.  Fridays are casual days allowing the child to wear jeans, T-shirts, etc.  We suggest a change of clothing remain at school in a labeled bag.  All field trips require that your child wear our Montessori T-shirt, otherwise they will be provided with one and billed accordingly.
