Wellies and outdoor clothing

We use the woodland and outdoor area regularly and we need all children to have appropriate clothing for this. All children need a pair of named wellies to be left at nursery and outer wear appropriate for the weather.

Spare Clothes

It is essential to leave a bag with spare clothes in on your child’s peg in case of accidents/water or mud from explorations. We do not have spare clothing for more than one or two changes as we find our spare clothing does not get returned to nursery. Please ensure that bags and spare clothes are named.

Nursery Fund

We ask for a contribution of 50p per week. This is used to buy ingredients for cooking and making play dough and other necessities for nursery. Without this contribution we are not able to carry out cooking and other activities that involve buying extra resources.

How you can help your child

    Encourage them:

  • To be independent i.e. dressing, washing hands, changing shoes, putting own coat on
  • To say ‘please and thank you’
  • To tidy up after themselves
  • To sit and listen to a short story
  • To sing nursery rhymes
  • To have a go at making marks on paper with pens and pencils
