The Brooklin Mill Montessori School student uniform consists of easy-care pieces that you can mix and match to manage your child’s clothing budget. A crested top, black dress pants, and black (preferably non-marking sole) shoes form the core school dress code and can be worn by boys and girls. Girls may choose a royal green tartan dress or tartan ‘skort’ and select from a range of hair accessories. Please note that the girl’s tartan dress or skort qualify as crested items.
Brooklin Mill Montessori School crested tops include polo shirts (long or short sleeve), turtlenecks, and blouses. Children may also wear a school embroidered vest or cardigan over a white top of your choice. Black dress pants are available in a range of styles from our uniform supplier (mock fly, half-back elastic, girls flare) or you may select your own black dress pants. During the warmer months, khaki shorts are also available for boys.

Why School Uniforms?
Studies have shown that school uniforms have a positive effect on students and school communities. (Brunsma, Huss) Just as “clothes make the man”, so too do uniforms make the student! A child’s self-image influences their behaviour. School uniforms create a positive and deliberate framework focused on learning. Helping to build a sense of community within the school, uniforms also create an atmosphere of belonging.
Parents have found that uniforms make mornings easier. A smooth start in the morning is often the key to a productive and happy day. School uniforms are also cost-effective, with high quality, durable pieces that won’t go out of style. Children will be encouraged to express their individuality through the arts, music, sports, personality and academic achievement, rather than through their clothes.
