While we take every care to protect your child’s clothing whilst in the setting, there may be times when their clothes become wet or dirty during activities. We have painting aprons and waterproof aprons for the messy areas.
Please do not send your child into pre-school with their best clothes on, older or inexpensive clothing would be most suitable. We encourage children to be independent, please ensure their clothing allows this, velcro and buckle shoes are a good idea, dungarees and belts may prevent them undressing for using the toilet quickly.
Please ensure your child is dressed appropriately for the weather conditions at different times of the year. We spend a lot of time outdoors so your child will always need to have a coat and in bad weather a hat, scarf and gloves. In summer we will only allow your child to play outdoors if they have a sun hat to protect them from sun damage. All clothing should have the child’s name on each article of clothing. This is to ensure it can be returned to you if it is found in the setting or mistakenly taken home by another child. Could we ask you to provide a complete change of clothes for your child to be left in the setting in a bag with their name on.This is to ensure we have clothes to suit your child if they need to be changed. Your child may want to have a pair of wellington boots left at the setting, this allows them to go on grass, snow and muddy areas during outdoor play. Could their name be written on the inside of each boot please to enable staff to know which boots belong to which child.
