Clothing and kit

Due to being an Outside setting , the likelihood of your child getting wet and muddy whilst having fun and learning is quite high. To enable them to play happily without worrying about ruining their clothes or getting wet, we advise you send your child along in the appropriate clothing.

It is really important the the children are dressed so that they stay warm and dry all day. Please ensure that their Wellies are big enough for them to wear a thin cotton pair of socks with a thick Woolen pair on top and still have room for wriggling their toes. Waterproof mittens e.g ski or woolen mittens will help keep hands warm.

We would like parents/carers to provide the following for all year round outside play, country walks and gardening. Please pack everything into a small rucksack and label all items.

Please ensure that your child is wearing long sleeved top and either long trousers or leggings tucked into socks, even if it is hot weather, this will help protect them from brambles, nettles, wasps, bees, ticks etc.

  • At least 1 complete change of clothing.
  • Wellington Boots in wet weather and sturdy shoes or trainers in the dry weather.
  • Waterproof jacket and trousers all year round.
  • Hat , Scarf and Gloves in Winter
  • Sun Hat , Sun screen in the summer
  • Water Bottle

We  generally have a few of the  following items for sale in stock. The waterproofs either come from Lidl , which I buy in once a year. We also have a supplier called Raindrops, they sell Scandinavian Kindergarten outdoor wear , they are more expensive than the Lidl ones both are suitable to wear in our setting.
