We have listed a few items that your child should bring to pre-school on the first day. You can send these in a named bag which we can keep in pre-school (no drawstring bags or carrier bags please).
Children will need to bring in a bag with spare clothes in case of ‘accidents’ or if they become wet or dirty. This bag can be left in pre-school. If your child is still in nappies, please remember to bring in spares.
Wellington boots and coats
We aim to go out every day, weather permitting. To ensure that this is an enjoyable experience for your child, please provide them with a warm waterproof coat and hat and gloves for when it gets cold. Wellies can be brought if the weather is wet however we do not have space to store wellingtons left at pre-school.
We would be grateful if you could put your child’s name in their clothing, especially their coat and wellington boots. We have a lost property box in the pre-school.
Sun Cream and Sun Hats
We tend to stay outside for longer on sunny days. Please ensure that on warmer days your child is wearing sun cream on arrival and has a suitable hat to wear. We will request permission to reapply sun cream for children staying for the full day.
We celebrate children’s birthdays at pre-school. If you wish to bring in a treat for your child’s birthday please check with staff before hand as some of the children have allergies to certain foods.
Toys and comfort items
Personal toys from home are not advised for use during the sessions. This can cause upset for them and to other children. If your child needs to bring something to help him/her to settle, then please talk to your child’s Key Person.
Buggies and Scooters
Unfortunately we do not have the space to accommodate buggies and scooters during the sessions as we use the entire hall. Please ensure you are able to take these home with you.
