For Parents

 

General information

Uniforms

All students are required to wear a playful, non-restrictive school uniform. From our many years of experience, we have come to strongly believe that uniforms contribute positively to a child’s school experience. Even at a very young age we’ve seen that clothing trends, or the “haves” and “have-nots” of themselves and their peers can distract students. When all children are dressed the same, there is less focus on their outfits and more focus on the task at hand. Our feedback also shows that it’s much easier for parents, and eliminates any tricky buckles, zippers and snaps at potty time!

For detailed information about the required uniform pieces for your child, as well as to access the uniform store directly, please visit In School Wear at the link below. You will find all the McLoughlin Schools items you will need, and are able to conveniently shop for them online.

It is also very important to have your child’s clothing clearly labeled – when you all wear the same thing, it’s hard to identify your own pieces! Below are the names of two label companies that have proven trustworthy over the years. Enjoy a browse through their sites.

Inoculations

All children entering a school in Ontario are required to have up-to-date immunizations or a letter of exemption from their physician. We provide an immunization form as part of our registration package. We require a completed form prior to your child’s first day at school.

Activities

We have a variety of special events and presentations throughout the year. We also celebrate many holidays that embrace our multi-cultural community.

Student Progress

Progress reports are issued at the end of the year in the Nursery Program and at the end of each term in the Kindergarten Program.  Parent/teacher interviews are offered for both Programs.

Nutrition

Our daily program includes a nutritious mid – program snack. The school enforces a strict nut-free policy, and accommodates children’s special dietary needs and allergies.
