Clothing & uniform
There is a non-compulsory uniform of red T-shirts (from £6.99) and sweatshirts (£8.99) with the Preschool’s logo, which encourages children to feel part of the Preschool family and helps prepare them for wearing a full uniform when they move on to school.
Uniform is available to buy online from www.schooltrendsonline.com. There is no minimum order quantity and items can be delivered directly to the Preschool (free P&P) or to your home address (charges apply). Full details are available by clicking on the above link. There are samples available at Preschool and we would strongly encourage your child to try the uniform on for size, before placing an order. Please speak to a staff member should you wish to do this.
We provide protective clothing and aprons for messy activities; however, we ask that children do not come to Preschool wearing their best clothes, as some days can get very messy! We like to encourage children to develop skills that will help them look after themselves and this includes taking off and putting on outdoor clothes and learning to get dressed. Clothing that is easy for them to manage will enable the children to become more independent.
Children are also expected to bring a full change of named clothing with them every day.
Please refer to the Forest School page for further information on appropriate clothing for Forest School sessions.
