Clothing

Freedom to move and enjoy

The children need to be able to move around during their play period and should be unimpaired by clothing. While paints, etc will come out in the wash, accidents do happen so it is best to send the children along in their “less than good clothes”. Young children enjoy and need “messy” play with paint, clay, sand, water and mud.

We have a limited supply of spare clothing. Please supply at least one change of clothing and underclothing in case of accidents, for 3-5 year olds.

Please mark your child’s clothing and replace name tags if they fade in the wash. Ensure clothing is weather appropriate.

For toddlers & babies

Please ensure that babies and toddlers have about three complete changes of clothing and plenty of training pants.

Clothing safety

Please do not dress your child in clothing with cords e.g. shorts, hats etc. As these have the potential to become caught on equipment and may cause serious harm to your child.

Belongings

Please ensure that all of your children's belongings are clearly marked.  Lost property is placed in a box in each room.  After a reasonable amount of time, any unclaimed clothing is donated to charity, hence the need to label everything.  Please do not bring toys from home.

Bag Storage

Each child is allocated a hook (a storage bucket in the Sweetpea room). Please hang bags, coats, etc on your child's hook or place it in their bucket.
