What to bring

One week before your child is due to start at the nursery you need to give the nursery a call to book some settling in sessions for your child, and to confirm your child’s start date.

Each child needs to bring to nursery the following:

Changes of clothes in case of accidents. Please make sure these are clearly labelled with your child’s name.

Nappies – You can bring in a large amount for us to keep at the nursery, and we will let you know when your child needs more.

Wipes/Baby Lotion/Cotton Wool. Again you can bring in a large amount for us to keep at the nursery, and we will let you know when your child needs more.

Food for your child, if you wish to provide your own.

Comforters or dummies that they may need for bed time. Please make sure that these are clearly labelled with your child’s name.

Sun hat in the summer and hat, gloves, scarf and wellies in the winter. Even if it is cold we will still be going out on trips, nature walks and out to play in the garden. Please make sure that these are clearly labelled with your child’s name.

An old T-shirt would be great for any art and craft activities, as children do tend to get very messy. We will be using aprons during these activities but cannot guarantee your child’s clothes staying clean throughout the day.

Lots of spare clothes if potty training is in progress. Accidents do tend to happen when they are busy enjoying themselves.

A toothbrush for your child to keep at nursery. All the children will be encouraged to brush their teeth after lunch.

We ask parents not to use plastic bags for their children’s belongings, as a safety precaution.
