SUMMER DRESS CODE
The first day of summer may be June 20th, but the weather is starting to feel like it's already here. Lets talk about CCCB's summer dress code....
Please dress your child in clean, comfortable play clothes so that he/she can move freely from one activity to another. We will be very active and not always tidy, so please do not let children wear any “special clothes”. GYM SHOES PLEASE! Shoes should have non-skid soles and closed-in toes. If your child comes in any other type of shoe, it may limit their involvement in many of our activities. ABSOLUTELY NO OPEN-TOED SHOES! Classrooms are required to go outside daily, so please be sure your child is dressed appropriately for the weather.
Children may go outside as long as it is under 95 F, including the heat index. Hats and sunglasses can, and should, be worn outside, but are not allowed to be worn indoors. Backless or strapless shirts are not allowed. Water shoes or flip-flops may be worn outside only during water play, so be sure to send extra shoes for them to wear inside.
As always, a change of clothes is recommended. Please check your child's cubby and make sure you switch out the winter/spring clothing to something more summer appropriate .
WITH SUMMER COMES SUN...
It is highly recommended by the Cook County Department of Public Health that children’s skin be protected from the sun while at the pool or engaging in other outdoor water activities. Sunscreen should be applied by the parent daily before arrival at the Center. Parents should also send the sunscreen of their choice, labeled with their child’s name (in permanent waterproof marker). The product will be applied by the children with staff assistance at the Center prior to scheduled water play activities. Because of the importance of this type of protection, any child who does not have their own sunscreen will be given sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 45.
Now let the summer fun begin!
