What to Bring

Because of COVID measures, students should only come to Pear Tree with:

  • Indoor shoes (in addition to their outdoor shoes). Indoor shoes can be left at Pear Tree for the week.
  • A water bottle (labelled with your child’s name)
  • A sun hat / sunglasses
  • A jacket
  • Packed lunch (ideally in a brown paper bag)
    (if not part of our Healthy Hot Lunch Program – in Kitsilano only)
  • Sunscreen should be applied before arriving.
    Staff can apply our own sun spray, but cannot physically apply the lotion for your child
  • EpiPen? if your child has a severe allergy, ensure that your child has an EpiPen on them at all times. Inform Pear Tree staff of this, too.

What Not to Bring

  • Pear Tree is a nut-free zone. Do not bring any products with nuts into any of our facilities! Please be cautious with the snacks you provide your child, especially granola bars, which often contain nuts.

    If we notice that your child has a product containing nuts, we will need to dispose of this for the safety of the other students.
