UNIFORM AND CLOTHING
Children should wear comfortable clothing and not their best outfits as we do like to get messy at Rainbow! We offer an optional uniform that stops the children from marking their own clothes. We encourage parents to dress their children in the Rainbow uniform as it gives a sense of unity for your child within the group and ensures that your child's best clothes are kept in good and clean condition. It also makes the children easily identifiable when we are out on trips.
Please note that the prices charged are at cost and there is absolutely no obligation to buy any of the clothing.
Please speak to a member of staff for further details regarding uniform.
A full change of clothing should be supplied by you for your child and all items should be clearly labelled with the child’s name. The clothing needs be stored in a drawstring bag that can be hung on their coat peg. We also ask that all children keep a labeled pair of indoor footwear (e.g. plimsolls or slippers) and a pair of labeled wellies at the pre-school all year round.
We do provide protective clothing for the children when they play with messy activities.
Spring and Summer Essentials
Children are required to wear sun hats whilst playing out in the garden during this time. Also a light-weight shower-proof coat is useful to ensure that your child can enjoy some outdoor play on showery days. On sunny days please ensure that you have applied sunscreen to your child before bringing to pre-school. We will re-apply sunscreen to your child after Lunch Club if your child stays with us all day.
Autumn and Winter Essentials
Please provide your child with a clearly labeled water-proof coat, hat and gloves as the children will be given the chance to play outside in all weather conditions.
