Clothing & footwear...
back to the top
We find that children are able to relax and learn best when they feel comfortable so we give parents the following suggestions:
- Short sleeves are best for painting (like our own Youth club Pre-school T-shirt)
- Clothes which are easily washed and not too new are better as we might get messy sometimes
- Comfortable shoes like trainers or pumps are best as heeled shoes, boots, wellies and flip flops are not safe on some of our equipment
- Costumes and party clothes should be saved for party days as they might get messy or caught on the equipment
- Hats and sunscreen should be worn and shoulders covered on very sunny days as we usually play outside
- And... please remember to label your child's hats, coats, cardigans and gloves as this saves lots of time and tears at home time.
