Please note:

  1. Ensure all extra items are clearly labelled and we advise packing them in bags which can also be used to return wet or dirty clothes at the end of the day
  2. Remember to pack plenty of spare hats, gloves and socks
  3. The best way to keep your child warm is to dress them in layers. If your child is too warm, we can then easily remove a layer.
  4. It is essential that children have a set of waterproofs with them every day so they can participate in all muddy and wet weather activities.
