Layers are a good idea so you can remove or put on clothes depending on our changing weather. Comfortable clothes and shoes for running around in. Clothes that are not precious – they can get dirty when outside or messy when inside!  A painting apron for messy art is a good idea or an old shirt! Bring a change of clothes if you might forget to visit the toilet when taking part in all our exciting activities.
A Packed Lunch with plenty of snacks for break times:
  • A water bottle
  • Any medication in a named container
  • Waterproof clothes for outside play
  • Medication form if this is needed and has not already been completed.
Please note that we are a nut free zone!
