Early Years and Reception Uniform
At Oakhill Early Years, we believe that children learn and develop best when they feel safe, secure and comfortable. Therefore, we have a relaxed approach to uniform that allows children to move freely, climb and explore yet maintain a sense of belonging and community.
Outdoors & Forest School
With our Forest School, Large Outdoor Learning and dedicated Early Years Forest Play areas, we activity encourage outside learning, every day and in all weathers. We have a limited amount of outdoor clothing for children to borrow, however, it is really helpful if children can have the following items in school, in a bag on their pegs during the appropriate seasons.
During designated Forest school sessions, children are able to wear their own clothes suitable for the weather and season. More information about Forest School will be provided by your class teacher.
Children in Nursery and Reception will take part in more organised PE session. On their designated PE day, Reception children will need to come to school dressed for PE.
At Oakhill Early Years, we learn using all of our senses. We explore mud, water, messy play, paint and pens. We have some aprons and spare puddlesuits that we encourage children to use in order to protect their clothing and keep dry. Apologies in advance for any messy clothes that may make their way home!
Please ensure your child has a named bag on their peg with spare clothes in case of toileting accidents or messy play. Please label your child’s clothing, particularly jumpers.
