As a mom, I see the benefits of this change. For one, it helps to prevent bullying. When I was in school, people were often labeled and discriminated against if they weren't wearing the latest styles. The fact is, not all families are wealthy enough to afford $150 jeans or ridiculously priced sneakers. A child shouldn't be targeted for their family's economic status. I recall one of the worst things you could be called was a "K-Mart Shopper". Granted, this was in the 80's and 90's, and K-Mart has come a long way since then.
Another reason that kids school uniforms may be a good idea, even in public establishments, is because it takes away distractions and allows kids to focus on learning rather than what other kids wore to school that day. Let's face it: The clothing that some kids choose to wear can be downright inappropriate or even offensive, and this is not conducive to learning. If a kid comes to school wearing a halter top and very short shorts, they're going to get a lot of attention. (Probably not positive attention, either!) This can cause a great amount of distraction in the classroom.
Who is French Toast, and what do they offer? Well, this is a great company that provides fashionable uniforms for children of all ages. They offer a ton of styles and colors, so you're sure to find the perfect fit for your school or daycare's dress code. As a matter of fact, French Toastis America's leading brand of school uniform. Since 1958, this company has provided families with quality children’s wear and boys and girls school uniforms at great prices. Their selection of uniform styles and sizes is second to none, from toddler size uniforms through young adult, French Toast carries over thousands of individual items in a wide range of colors, styles and sizes in stock, all year round!
The other thing I noticed right away is how cute these outfits are! They are nothing at all like the school uniform staples that one would envision in their head. French Toast offers some truly adorable and unexpected tops, sweaters, dresses, and even graphic tees. These will definitely have your child looking sharp in class, even if uniforms aren't required!
Check out Sophie and Xander below. How cute are they?!
I just love Sophie's dress. It's a nice, modest length, and very trendy with the denim skirt and heart patterned top.
And Xander is looking pretty smart in his button-up, short-sleeved plaid top. I just love the fun colors, too.
Here's Sophie again. This time, she's wearing a more traditional uniform. She's looking like she's ready to tackle a busy school day, don't you agree?
