What to wear

In order to feel free to explore and experiment with all kinds of materials and activities, including messy ones, it is best to send your child dressed in clothes which are easily washed or not too new. It is also good for children to practice the skills which will make them independent.

Simple clothing which they can handle themselves will enable them to go to the toilet when they want to, and to put on and take off their outdoor clothes without being too dependent on other people’s help. Please try to avoid braces and all-in-one suits.

We also ask that your child keeps a spare set of clothes or uniform in a bag on their coat peg, and that all their clothes are clearly named – this cuts down on items getting lost!

Please consider weather conditions and safety when selecting nursery clothing for your child.  During hot weather we are careful to ensure children are safe from the sun.  Tee-shirts should cover shoulders, hats should be worn, together with an application of sun protection cream.

In order to ensure safe play in the garden please select only shoes and trainers that cover the whole foot, and that the child can get on and off easily.  Please also avoid clothing with dangling laces that can get caught in equipment whilst playing.
