    Hapy child hugging herself

    Highwood encourages children to explore and experience the environment we live in.

    Although we do provide protective clothing for painting and gluing, some children may still get dirty, so please ensure that your child is wearing easily-washable clothes, which they do not have to worry about soiling.

    We try to encourage all those who can, to dress and undress themselves. So the sort of clothes you give them to wear will either help or hinder this. Toggles, large zips or press studs are much easier than fiddly buttons. When children are toilet training please consider their clothing and ensure it is easy to remove, so as to support quick and easy access to the toilet.

    The weather rarely keeps us in, unless it is very bad, so it is essential that you send your child with suitable clothing. Warm and waterproofs coats are needed when cold and a sun hat for when it is warm and sunny, and of course the all essential sun cream for protection.

    We ask you to provide a named bag for your child's personal belongings which can be placed on a peg in each room. All Clothing must be marked with your child's name.
