Although there is no formal uniform policy at nursery, a nursery sweatshirt will be available for collection when your child attends their first trial session, or when they transfer to our Duckling group. The cost of which is included in the registration fee. The sweat shirt will save other clothes from becoming spoiled.
You will also receive a white bag, which should be used to bring spare clothes and indoor shoes to nursery. We would appreciate it if you did use this bag as they are space saving by hanging easily on the children’s pegs.
You will also be provided with a book bag which MUST be brought to nursery each time your child attends as this will be used for reading books and also to pass on important information such as newsletters and other correspondence.
Other uniform including polo shirts are available to purchase at cost price. All uniform is good quality and washes extremely well.
Should you not wish to utilise uniform, normal day clothes should be worn (please don’t send children in their best clothes as they will enjoy messy play and craft activities – the nursery takes no responsibility for clothes becoming stained or dirty).
Children should also bring a pair of Wellington boots to nursery to use when playing outdoors, as even if the ground is wet, we still enjoy the fresh air.
We also ask that the children bring a warm coat and hat during cold weather and that in the summer they bring a sun hat for protection and also that “sun block” be applied to all exposed flesh at home before they come to nursery. Most sun blocks last for several hours unless exposed to water, so one application in the morning should afford good protection. Sun protection creams should never be sent to nursery in children’s bags as at best the results of children trying to apply it themselves is messy and at worst may present a health hazard.
ALL CLOTHES AND BELONGINGS MUST BE CLEARLY MARKED WITH YOUR CHILD’S NAME, INCLUDING OUTDOOR CLOTHES, SHOES AND BOOTS.
Please send in adequate spare clothes especially for babies and toddlers who are potty training.
If your child is still using nappies, please make sure we have adequate supplies.
A NOTICE BOARD AT THE ENTRANCE TO YOUR CHILD’S ROOM WILL REMIND YOU ABOUT NAPPIES – ALTERNATIVELY WE WILL USE OUR EMERGENCY SUPPLY, WHICH WILL BE CHARGED AT 25P PER NAPPY
