We start with ”A Unique Child” when your child begins Nursery and then each child has a record of their development that is completed each term. We use iConnect as our online learning journal and communication tool.
A change of clothes is very useful and a pair of pumps or other indoor shoes. Waterproofs are essential as we go out whatever the weather.
Dress for mess! Children who are toilet training are best in jogging bottoms or shorts. Trousers with belts can be tricky for younger children who want to be independent. In winter please put a t-shirt on under a fleece or jumper as it can be hot after a physical activity.
Clothes should be labelled with your child’s name.
If your child has a special toy or blanket that they are much attached to you are welcome to send that in to Nursery clearly labelled with the child’s name.
