My daycare centre insists on closed-toe shoes. No thongs allowed! I send DD in crocs when it's hot.

At my kids daycare they wore shoes or sandals. Footwear had to be on except during nap time.

My DS always wore shoes for daycare/preschool outside and in, not sure what the rules were but he never took them off and on. Bare foot is bad for him as he has flat feet and need to wear orthotics as often as possible. OP if there is a risk from the soil I would insist on shoes at least outside in this case.

DS has only been wearing shoes a couple of months. We usually send him to daycare in shoes but he often comes home barefoot.
A couple of the educators tried to tell us to put shoes on him earlier than we were ready. We refused saying it was better for his feet to learn to walk barefoot. They were ok once we explained our reasoning.

At our daycare they dont recommend thongs.
Most kids are in sandals in summer & joggers in winter however spend a lot of time in bare feet.
Our play area is pretty safe though, astroturfed etc

We live in the tropics, but have a shoe free daycare. Our outdoor areas are AstroTurf.
