Nursery Kit List

For Health and Safety reasons, it is essential that your child is equipped properly EVERY DAY they attend. Please note that children WILL NOT be allowed to stay if they are inadequately equipped. Please follow the kit lists below. We also ask that you label all of your child’s personal belongings.


Kit List – Essential Daily (to be accompanied with the weather-specific Kit Lists)

(to be accompanied with the weather-specific Kit Lists)

  • Rucksack to keep everything in on their peg.
  • Healthy packed lunch with an ice pack to keep contents fresh
  • Named Drinks bottle with water-please bring filled up each day
  • Waterproofs (trousers and jacket, plus a spare set!)
  • Warm fleece jumper/zip up jacket plus spare
  • Appropriate footwear (including a pair of wellies) plus a spare pair.

Cold Weather

Kit List – for colder weather (in addition to Essential kit!)

  • Thermal base layer – leggings, long sleeve top and long thermal socks.
  • A thinner long sleeve top plus spares.
  • A warm fleece/wool long sleeve top or jacket plus spares.
  • Cosy trousers i.e. tracksuit pants (NOT jeans, these do not dry well) plus spares.
  • Two pairs of waterproof mittens and two pair of warm gloves.
  • Warm hat and a snood (these are much better than a scarf)

Kit List – for warmer weather (in addition to Essential kit!)

  • A sun hat.
