There is the expectation that parents joining the outdoor nursery will provide appropriate clothing.
It would be very helpful if your child (as much as possible) could come dressed ready for the day. If the weather becomes colder we will add more layers and vice versa if the weather gets warmer. It makes getting outside to the forest much quicker and easier.
EVERYDAY kit you will need to bring:
Bag to keep everything in.
Waterproofs (trousers and jacket).
Warm fleece jumper/zip up jacket.
Appropriate footwear (including a pair of wellies).
If your child is staying the day
- Healthy packed lunch.
For colder weather
Thermal base layer – leggings, long sleeve top and long thermal socks.
A thinner long sleeve top.
A warm fleece/wool long sleeve top or jacket.
Cosy trousers i.e. tracksuit pants (NOT jeans, these do not dry well).
Waterproof mittens and warm gloves.
Warm hat and a snood (these are much better than a scarf).
Plenty of spare warm socks.
For warmer weather (in addition to everyday kit!)
Long trousers (these are still a necessity to prevent scratches and stings).
Short sleeve top (covered shoulders to avoid burning).
Jumper (as it can be cool at the beginning of the day or in the shaded areas of the garden).
Sun cream (Please apply at home. There are some good “once a day” sun creams available too. In very hot weather staff will reapply).
A sun hat.
If you feel your child needs insect repellent, please apply at home.
Please name everything!
If you have any difficulty providing the kit please speak to Mrs Dallimore.
