Useful Info

Clothing and belongings

Each child is allocated a peg and drawer for their personal possessions. We ask children to not bring toys and objects from home unless a comforter or invited to show, this is to prevent breakage or loss.

Parents should provide a change of clothes, wellies and indoor shoes, these can be left at preschool. We ask that children have weather appropriate clothing as we use the outside areas every day. Layers of clothing are also recommended so children can add or take off depending on the temperature. We recommend clothing and shoes that can get dirty and are easy for them to manage, as we encourage children to be independent in dressing and self-care. Please name possessions. Preschool sweatshirts and t-shirts in a variety of sizes can be purchased from the setting. If your child is in nappies please provide spare nappies and their usual wipes.
