First days at Pre-School

We want your child to feel happy and safe with us.  To make sure that this is the case, the staff will work with you to decide on how to help your child to settle into Acorns.

What to wear

We provide protective clothing for the children when they play with messy activities however we encourage all children to be dressed appropriately for messy play.

We encourage children to gain the skills that help them to be independent and look after themselves.  These include taking themselves to the toilet and taking off – and putting on – outdoor clothes.  Clothing that is easy for them to manage by themselves will help them to do this.

What to bring

  • A change of clothes in case of accidents/messy play getting very messy
  • Nappies and wipes
  • Water/drinks bottle
  • A packed lunch if your child will be joining us over the afternoon session

We hope that your child’s time in pre-school will be a very happy and productive one.  If you have any queries or if we can be of any help, please contact the staff committee/management at any time.
