Suitable Clothing

Please dress your child in clothes you don’t mind getting messy.  Please also make sure that your child has suitable outdoor clothing as this is offered on a daily basis. Black slip-on gym shoes are used within the nursery to ensure safety during physical activities.  

There are 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, dangling earrings;
  • carry advertising, particularly for alcohol or tobacco; and
  • could be used to inflict damage on other children or be used by others to do so.

Glasgow City Council is concerned at the level of claims being received regarding the loss of children’s and young peoples’ clothing and/or personal belongings. Parents/carers are asked

to assist in this area by ensuring that valuable items and unnecessarily expensive items of clothing are not brought to nursery.

Parents/carers/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.
