Useful Parent Information

From what your child should wear to what they should bring!  Here is some useful information for parents.


  • Your child should feel comfortable when they come to pre-school. For many, this is wearing their regular clothes. But remember at pre-school we like to have fun, and this can be messy fun! 

  • At Chieveley Pre-School we do have a uniform, although it is optional we believe it is a way for the children to feel part of the pre-school and is a great way to protect their own clothing. It's also useful in preparing them for 'big' school!

  • Our uniform consists of sweatshirts and t-shirts - all uniform can be ordered directly, with our pre-school logo from Skoolkit in Newbury.

  • If you do not wish to send your child in uniform we just ask that you do not use their best clothes!


What your child will need to bring:

  • A named drawstring bag (available to purchase from pre-school) with a change of clothes. Learning through play can be messy! Your child may get muddy, wet, or covered in paint, also useful in case of toilet accidents. DON'T FORGET TO NAME EVERYTHING!

  • Lunch box. We normally recommend that lunchboxes contain sandwiches, yogurts, fruit etc. We try to discourage things like processed ready foods, fizzy drinks and chocolate.

  • A named water bottle. We have fresh water readily on hand throughout the day but your child may prefer to bring their own water bottle.

  • Seasonal essentials. Whatever the weather we like to go outside, so your child will need the appropriate clothing, such as a sun hat, sun cream, waterproof coat, welly boots, hat & gloves.

  • Nappies/ medication or inhalers; if needed.
