All children will have their “special peg/box” in the cloakroom where you can leave a change of clothes e.g. trousers/skirt, t-shirt, pants socks etc. We have a very limited stock of spare clothes therefore it is important that your child’s bag/box is replenished after use. It is essential for every child to have a pair of soft shoes to wear within the playroom. Apart from comfort it is more hygienic and therefore essential that your child changes from outdoor shoes.
When dressing your child for nursery we ask that you consider the following:
- Children enjoy taking part in ‘messy’ activities and although every effort is made to see that they wear the aprons provided, accidents do happen.
- We encourage every child to become independent in self-help skills such as going to the toilet on their own. (belts on trousers, stiff buttons etc can make this difficult)
- Considering our climate outdoor clothing is essential. To take advantage of the outdoor play area and the local community we ask that all children are brought to nursery suitably dressed for the weather. The nursery does have a small supply of wet weather clothing (waterproofs and wellinghtons) for children who are brought without their ‘wellies’
- During the summer months we ask the parents to provide sun cream for thier child with a minimum protection factor of 20. Children should wear appropriate clothing for example T shirts/tops that cover their shoulders.
