Diapers and wipes. Each child has a yellow bin above the diaper changing table to store diapers, wipes, creams, etc. Please check your child’s bin often to know when you are running low and need to replenish. Staff will also notify you through Brightwheel when more supplies are needed. Please label the outside of diaper packages, baby wipe containers and diaper creams.
Pacifier (if applicable). Pacifier clips are not allowed per DCYF regulations.
Seasonally appropriate clothing. At least three spare outfits should be kept in your child’s cubbie. Each outfit should include a onesie or a top and bottom and socks. During cooler months, warm jackets, hats, and mittens. During warmer months, a sun shading hat is necessary.
Bottles. If possible, please provide clearly labeled bottles to keep at school. Bottles are washed and sanitized daily. Breast milk, canisters of formula and preferred water must also be provided. Otherwise, prepared bottles can be brought in daily and taken home at night. Freezer space is available to store backup breastmilk.
Food. Please bring in meals and snacks needed for the day, fully prepared and ready to be served. Staff can heat food in our microwave if needed. We supply plates, bowls and utensils. Food can be placed in labeled bins located inside the refrigerator.
Bedding. Our crib mattresses are a special size and fit most pack and play sheets only. Crib sheets are taken home on Fridays, washed and returned on Monday. If you do not have a fitted sheet in the correct size, we will provide you with one. Our sheets remain at the school and will be washed by our staff.
