KINDERGARTEN
We would like children to be dressed in practical, childlike clothing, that allows healthy play without the worry of getting dirty or wet. Plain coloured clothes free of words and pop culture characters tend to support children’s imaginative play. We are aware of the need to remain ‘sun smart’ in Aotearoa and for that reason in Terms One and Four, children need clothing that protects their shoulders, neck, and midriff, and a sunhat.

• slippers or indoor shoes – to stay at kindergarten
• sturdy shoes or sandals – no jandals or bare feet
• sunhat – Term One and Term Four
• warm jacket, hat, and gloves – Term Two and Term Three
• gumboots – for wet weather
• waterproof clothing – jacket and over pants allow children to play outside in all weather
• change of clothes – kept in each child’s bag for when required
• long hair tied back – includes shoulder length or longer for health and safety reasons
• extra warm layer – a warm jersey or jacket for changes in the weather.
