Arizona Winter is Here! Dress your children in layers. Physical warmth is vital to the healthy development of children. Children need to be dressed in layers for ease of movement and comfort.
Children in the Early Childhood and early school years are still developing their internal thermometer, which means their awareness of how warm or how cool they feel is often limited. By dressing your child appropriately for all types of weather, their small bodies need not divert extra energy towards regulating their internal temperature, thus allowing them to grow and play with vigor.
Also, remember to put your child’s name on their jacket if possible and gather their layers at the end of the school day. Jackets & sweaters that are found on the play yards are sent to lost and found and then unclaimed items are donated.
