Suitable Clothing

Children have great fun when they are doing messy work.  We will always try to make sure that they wear aprons or overalls, but accidents do happen so please dress your child in suitable clothing.  Ideally, old clothing with simple fastening should be worn and you should encourage your child to dress and undress and go to the toilet independently. Please label all items of clothing and shoes.  As we encourage our children to play out of doors every day,  it is important they come suitably dressed for the changing weather conditions.
Sun Protection is vital during the summer months and warm waterproof clothes and footwear are required in winter.
Please provide your child with a pair of indoor shoes to change into upon arrival at nursery.

There are forms of dress which are not acceptable within the nursery, such as items of clothing which:

  • potentially, encourage faction (such as football colours)
  • 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 and young peoples’ clothing and/or personal belongings. Parents/Carers are asked to assist in this area by ensuring that valuable items and unnecessarily expensive items of clothing are not brought to nursery.  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.
