Get Ready for Winter

We consider outdoor play to be vital for your child‛s health, development and education. Children will have the opportunity to develop physical skills, spatial awareness and learn to take appropriate risks. We encourage them to play outdoors in all weather, including snow.

Children's Clothing

It is important that your child’s clothing is clearly marked with their name. Children are often involved in messy play during sessions so we recommend they dress in washable clothes which are not too precious. As children become more independent they will benefit from simple fastenings on trousers, shoes/trainers (Velcro type fastenings) and jackets to encourage this independence. Some of the most enjoyable activities such as painting, gluing and working with play dough entail an amount of mess. Children will be provided with protective aprons. Your child will have the opportunity to play outside, weather permitting. Nursery provides full body suits for the children so their indoor clothes keep warm and dry. We ask parents to provide wellington boots during the wet winter months.
