Please dress your child according to the weather but make sure they wear play clothes.  Even when we cover them with t-shirts it is possible to come home with clay or paint on their clothes.

What is the snack that is provided?

We provide a juice box and snack (crackers, etc).  If your child has special dietary needs we will gladly serve them whatever you provide.
