WHAT TO WEAR
Please dress your children with a regard to the physical and sometimes messy activities that they may be engaged in. We are helping the children to become independent, and it is important that they manage their own clothes when going to the toilet so it helps if you can dress them in clothes which are easy to manage e.g. elasticated waists.
If your child is wearing nappies when they are at Nursery, please may we respectfully ask that you bring nappies and baby wipes from home each week and place them in your child's pump bag on their coat peg. Staff will then let you know when your supplies are running low.
It is not compulsory for your child to wear our uniform, but if you would like your child to wear it, our navy and jade embroidered sweatshirts and polo shirts can be ordered and paid for at the school office throughout the year. Order forms with up to date pricing information are available from the pigeon holes in the main entrance. Please click here for our Nursery Uniform Order Form / Price List
We make full use of the outdoor environment all year round, so please ensure your children are dressed appropriately for the weather, that is, sun cream and hats when it is warm and coats, gloves, and hats when it is cold.
Spare clothes should be clearly named and can be placed in your child's pump bag on their allocated peg.
Sun Protection Guidelines
As children regularly play outside, it is essential that they are protected from the sun. It is important through the warmer months that all children have an application of sun cream applied to them before coming to nursery.
In anticipation of warm weather this term we would like to remind you of our sun protection guidance:
- If the sun is shining please apply sun cream on your child before they come to Nursery.
- Please provide suitable clothing for your child to wear in the warmer months e.g. sun hats, longer sleeved t-shirts and long shorts and provide this labelled with your child’s name.
Please be aware that if sun cream has not been applied to your child, they will be restricted as to which areas they can access to keep them safe from the sun’s rays.
If your child attends Hillside Nursery for a full day, please click here for a Sun Cream Consent Form.
