About Us

Outdoors Everyday

At FCNS, we go outside EVERY DAY unless it is dangerous to do so. It is important for your child to have the appropriate clothing to enjoy their experience in nature. Here are some guidelines on what you will need to have by the start of school. 


Each child is required to have a rain suit and rubber/rain boots all school year. We suggest a Tuffo Muddy Buddy suit that is light weight and water proof. When purchasing, please get one size up because it will have to go over their snow pants and jacket in the winter time.
