Suitable Clothing

Children learn best when they are free to explore both indoors and out.  Children are encouraged to explore a variety of resources which may be messy at times.  Aprons will be available should they choose to wear one.

Children will have daily opportunities for outdoor play in all weathers.  Please ensure your child is appropriately dressed for the weather.  Please bring wellies and a change of clothes daily in your child’s nursery bag.  These should be taken home at the end of each session/day with your child.  Please remember a sun hat (legionnaires style) and sun cream when the weather is hot.  Parents/carters should always apply a high factor sun cream to their child before coming to nursery.  Staff will ‘top-up’ sun cream for children who stay all day.

Unacceptable clothing include items which:

  • potentially, encourage ‘friction’ (such as football colours and strips);
  • could cause offence (such as anti-religious symbolism or political slogans);
  • could cause health and safety difficulties, such as loose-fitting clothing, dangling earrings;
  • carry advertising, particularly for alcohol or tobacco; and
  • could be used to inflict damage on other children or be used by others to do so.

Glasgow City Council is concerned at the level of claims being received regarding the loss of children’s’ and young peoples’ clothing and/or personal belongings. Therefore, no valuable items and unnecessarily expensive items of clothing should be brought to establishment i.e phones, iPads, toys etc. Parents/Carers should note that the authority does not carry insurance to cover the loss of such items and any claims submitted are likely to be met only where the authority can be shown to have been negligent.
