What to bring to Nursery.

  • A change of clothes in a named bag
  • A water bottle with fresh water in each day. For health reasons, we ask that it is only plain water in these bottles, not squash, juice or flavoured water.
  • You are welcome to leave named wellies in a named carrier bag on your child’s peg

Ideally we would like children to be reasonably independent when using the toilet so please make sure they wear clothes they can manage easily (easy to undo / easy to pull up and down). However, if you are having any issues with toileting please discuss these with a member of staff and we will support you with these. 

Uniform is optional in Monkey class. School jumpers are available to order from Birds of Dereham.
