If you enter your school postcode RH1 6DZ (Infants) or RH1 6JX (Juniors), you can have the books delivered to school.

Uniform in the Nursery

There is no set uniform for Nursery. Your child should come dressed for active and messy play. We expect your child to bring a named waterproof coat and wellington boots everyday. You can purchase an Earlswood sweatshirt or cardigan for your child from the Infant School Office if you wish.

 

Reading

Every Thursday we invite you and your child to choose a book from the Nursery to share at home.

 

PE

PE sessions will take place once a week. There is no set PE kit; we ask that children come dressed for active play. E.g. jogging bottoms, leggings and t-shirts. No earrings are to be worn and long hair should be tied back.

 

Water, milk and spare clothes

Your child will need a named water bottle so they can have access to their water throughout their session.

Milk and a fruit or vegetable snack will be made available to your children during their session.

Please bring in a set of named spare clothes for your child.

 

We look forward to welcoming you all very soon.
