Clothing & footwear...

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.
