Suggested Dress / Attire

Children should dress comfortably, simply and suitably for the weather. We do engage in a number of “messy” activities that, despite smocks, can get clothes dirty. We do not inhibit the children unnecessarily, so we ask you to send them in comfortable clothes that they can play in without hesitation. Remember also that children will be playing out doors, so be sure their clothing is sturdy and durable. Dress in layers on cold days! An extra set of clothing (well labelled) including underwear, socks, trousers and shirt must be left at Oxford House permanently in case of accidents. An extra sweater or jacket at
school is also recommended since the temperature often changes noticeably. Proper shoes are comprised of closed-toe, clean and in good repair that are appropriate for walking and running.
***LABEL ALL CLOTHING PROMINENTLY WITH YOUR CHILD’S NAME.***

Whilst your child’s teacher and a co-teacher are always there to help, we encourage the children to be independent and to do as much as they can for themselves such as taking off their shoes and coats and managing to go to the toilet (with training) without assistance. Accordingly, we recommend shoes with simple fastenings. Plimsolls and quick fastening trainers are fine but we do not accept lace-up shoes. Please provide your child with a pair of good quality slippers which we will keep at the nursery so that he/she can change upon arrival and before going home.

We would be most grateful if you avoid lace-up shoes, crocs, and dungarees!

Our Philosophy

Each child is a person of worth deserving of our love and respect. Each child is unique with his/her own needs, interests, abilities and growth rate. Each child is a creative person who needs opportunities to experiment with a variety of materials and to develop social skills in an age appropriate setting.
