What to wear, what to bring

Each day your child attends Preschool they will need:

  • A complete change of clothes ( more if your child is toilet
  • training )
  • A legionnaire hat. We have a no hat, no play policy
  • A sheet or blanket if your child will be sleeping/resting. The service provides sleep bags
  • A comforter for sleep time. Dummy, toy etc.
  • A lunch box clearly labelled with your child’s snacks and lunch for the day
  • A drink bottle clearly labelled. We provide juice and water.

Please dress your child in comfortable clothes. Remember small buttons can be difficult when your child is toilet training. Clothes should be easily washable.

Children wear aprons during painting and messy activities, but sometimes they do get paint onto their clothes. All paint should wash off in the machine. For OH&S reasons we ask that children do not wear thongs or slip on shoes.

Please ensure all of your child’s clothes and belongings are labelled.

Meals & Lunch Boxes

Both services provide milk, juice and water throughout the day. We also provide Afternoon Tea. Both services have Afternoon Tea menus which change weekly. These have been devised with your child’s health and nutrition recommendations in mind.

Due to licensing regulations it is a requirement of the service to ensure children in care for extended periods of time receive 70% of their DRI ( Daily recommended intake ) whilst at care. We request when you pack your child’s lunch box daily you consider your child’s DRI.

Please ensure you pack an adequate amount of food. Should you be concerned about your child’s food or water intake please talk to a staff member.

If your child has specific dietary requirements, please bring these to the attention of the Director during you parent interview.
