My daughter's in pre school and she loves painting. But I dont understand why they dont use washable paint!? She ruined a new pair of boots I had just bought her for xmas and today she came home with a ruined sweater that was new. I asked the substitute teacher today if I could take her own paint but she suggested I just send her with the same ruined sweater & shoes daily. Im going to talk to her teacher tomorrow and see if I can take DD an apron. But the sub said I was the first parent to ever complain about this :/ is ruined clothes something I shuld just expect in pre school? I mean I know kids ruin clothes but if we can prevent it (washable paint) we should, right?

I would wonder why they werent using washable paint either... I would be upset! I wouldnt be able to afford to keep replacing clothes unless we just went to goodwill for everything.

Our daycare provided old tee shirts (adult size) to put over the kids clothes. What kind of preschool doesn't use washable paint?

I would be pissed!  All of the paint is washable in my sons preschool.  He always comes home clean and they do plenty of art. I think they wear smocks when they paint too.

I'd be very upset that they weren't using washable paint with preschoolers. They could at least either provide smocks or old t-shirts for them to paint in or ask the parents to send one in with their child.

My sons 3rd grade teacher went to a store and bought a bunch of cheap adult xl tshirts when they were doing a messy project for all the kids so they wouldn't ruin clothes.  My MIL is a preschool director.  They use washable paints and tshirts everytime.  That is clueless and lazy.  My guess some gave her the paints free and too cheap to go buy other paints and coverups.

I think the paint they use in my kids' preschool is washable, but I'm not even sure. They wear smocks when they paint, so they've never come home messy. But I also have them wear older clothes to school usually. That way if it gets ruined I'm not too upset.

My sons preschool uses washable paint and has aprons for all of the children. Why in heavens name would they not use washable paint? That makes no sense.

our school had the kids bring in oversized shirts to put over thier clothes to prevent them from getting paint on the clothes.
