Dress Code and Food

Our dress code

At Shurdington Pre-School, we aim to make use of our fantastic outdoor learning gardens as much as possible, regardless of what the local Cheltenham weather may bring!  So that your child can enjoy this time, please ensure that they are dressed appropriately for each day, i.e.  coats on a wet or chilly day and sunhats and sun-cream applied on warm days. We provide full waterproofs and wellies at all times for all children. If your child comes into Shurdington Pre-School in their own wellies, please include in their bag a pair of indoor shoes. As a general rule, play clothes that can cope with a bit of paint, mud and glue (and closed shoes to protect little toes) is certainly the way to go!

Please see the Kit List below for further details A Pre-School T-Shirt and water bottle are included with each child’s registration fee.  If you would like to purchase additional uniform, Shurdington Pre-School Uniform is also available to purchase. We do also have some second hand uniform items available.  Please speak to a member of the team for sizes and stock available. Each child should bring along a named bag to put on their peg each day and this should contain weather appropriate gear (i.e. hats and sunscreen if sunny), spare clothes (extra sets if potty training) and wipes and a nappy if necessary. We do always have spare clothes at Pre-School just in case. Should your child come home in Pre-School clothes, we ask that you please return them as soon as possible.

Shurdington Pre-School Kit List

In order to take full advantage of the wide range of messy, sensory and outdoor experiences on offer, we ask that your child comes to Pre-School fully prepared for the day ahead. Please name ALL your child’s belongings: it does make it easier to return clothing and items to their rightful owners! Thank you: The Pre-School Team.

They will need:

  • Play clothes: if your child doesn’t come home dirty, they haven’t had enough fun!
  • A bag of spare clothes: socks, top, jumper, trousers and pants (extra if toilet training)
  • Wipes, nappies, cream and nappy bags (if necessary)
  • A coat suitable for the current weather.
  • Suncream applied and with a sun hat on a hot, sunny day.
  • Gloves, hat and scarf on a cold day.
  • Shoes that cover their toes and that they can (at least try to) put on & take off themselves. (We change into wellies a lot and developing this independence is fab for their self esteem!)
  • A lunch box if they are staying past 12.15pm.


Please keep to healthy options such as a roll/sandwich or similar, raw vegetables, fruit and a yoghurt. One small treat is sufficient for the under fives such as a biscuit OR a cake OR a packet of crisps. Water is provided throughout the day however they may like a fruit juice or carton within their lunch box.

Products containing nuts, including Nutella chocolate spread are prohibited due to children with allergies as are egg sandwiches or hard boiled eggs for the same reason.
