Weather Approach As the weather changes, teachers must scan and observe the kids for proper weather gear. Teachers must set the example and wear the right weather clothing. Outdoor play is about getting messy and exploring nature; on a rainy day playing in the mud and the rain is essential; take this opportunity to built shelters, look for worms and jump in the puddles!!! We expect teachers to lead by example and demonstrate to children how to engage in these activities.
Scan and check the kids

  • Please make sure that kids have pants and proper winter layers. 
  • Check their backpacks for mittens, hats, and extra clothing such as sweaters, etc.
  • Children must wear their jackets even when exercising; if they are hot, they can open their jackets but keep them on. 
  • Children must have their jackets on at dismissal time; this shows that we prioritize their safety and facilitate dismissal so children can go home when their parents arrive.
  • In extreme weather such as raining or very cold days, please limit sitting activities such as drawing, painting, etc. Children should be moving around to avoid the cold and participate in fun games to help re-direct the focus on the weather. 


  • Please SCAN the children for proper weather gear!! If a child is not dressed in layers and it is cold, let us know! The site supervisor will contact the family so they can pick up the children. 
  • If a child is refusing to wear their jacket, please let us know! We must call families and communicate what is happening with their child. 
  • Teachers are encouraged to communicate with families regularly at dismissal time. Teachers should get organized, talked to all families, and let them know how the kids are doing.
  • For example, If there is a problem if a child had a hard time following directions or running away, the site supervisor should be aware of this, and we should communicate with the families. Parent-teacher communication is the key to children’s success in any program.
  • Communicate, communicate, communicate! Communicate to your supervisor what is happening in  , communicate with your co-teachers to plan in advance, and communicate with the families. 

Please watch these videos below about hypothermia and extreme weather signs and symptoms; we will meet with each school staff and discuss observation and weather-related questions.
