Renfrew Street Nursery
Close Menu

Please dress your child in comfortable clothing for play and to help them visit the toilet on their own (no belts, dungarees or stiff buttons). We do not want to cause upset if good clothes get messy.  Children are not required to change their shoes.  But they can bring indoor shoes if you wish. Please leave coats and wellington boots in the cloakroom for use in outdoor play.  A spare pair of clothing at nursery is needed in case children’s clothing becomes wet or messy which can happen during play.
Each child has a named peg for their coat. Please write your child’s name on all items of clothing.

There are some forms of dress which are unacceptable in nursery, such as items of clothing which:

  • potentially encourage faction (such as football colours)
  • could cause offence (such as anti-religious symbolism or political slogans)
  • could cause health and safety difficulties such as loose fitting clothing or dangling earrings
  • carry advertising, particularly for alcohol or tobacco
  • could be used to inflict damage on other children and young people or to be used by others to do so.

Glasgow City Council is concerned at the level of claims being received regarding the loss of children and young peoples’ clothing and/or personal belongings. Parents and carers are asked to assist in this area by ensuring that valuable items and unnecessarily expensive items of clothing are not brought to establishment. Parents and carers should note that the authority does not carry insurance to cover the loss of such items and any claims submitted are likely to be met only where the authority can be shown to have been negligent.
