As a daycare worker, you expend physical energy throughout your workday via bending, lifting, squatting, running and even crawling. You also participate in messy activities such as arts and crafts, feeding and diapering. Dressing up as a daycare worker requires clothing and footwear that allow you to safely and comfortably fulfill your duties. Yet, this doesn't mean you have to wear jeans and a T-shirt everyday. Instead, you can dress well and be comfortable.
Put on a pair of pants or shorts that will allow you to bend, squat and sit without restriction. Choose a cool, comfortable fabric such as cotton. Khakis or trouser jeans make for nicer apparel than plain jeans.
Pick a shirt that pulls on over your head. For a step-up from a regular T-shirt, choose a polo shirt with a collar. Button-up shirts work also; but beware of tiny hands grasping for the buttons. Again, choose cool, comfortable fabrics.
Put on a pair of cotton socks with a pair of flat-soled or low-heel shoes with some support. Choose stylish tennis shoes or other casual closed-toe shoes in good repair.
Keep jewelry to a minimum. If you like to wear earrings, avoid dangling styles. Instead choose stud-style earrings to keep curious children from tearing them out of your ears. Rings and watches are permissible. Be cautious of wearing a necklace, especially one with a large pendant because children can grab and pull.
