Winter is approaching and the weather is getting colder now. We have a duty to ensure children play outdoors everyday as it is key to their health, learning and development. Therefore, we kindly ask for parents to provide children with appropriate clothing to play outdoors, such as a warm coat, hat, gloves and scarf. Furthermore, can you please ensure your child has suitable footwear with closed shoes or boots. If your child wears slippers in the room can you also provide alternative footwear for the garden.
We would like to remind parents to please label your child’s clothing. This helps to ensure that clothing does not go missing or accidently taken home by another parent etc.
We would like to also request you provide sufficient spare clothing for your child on a daily basis.
