Sometimes children like to bring special or new items to nursery for their friends to see. However parents should ensure that valuable items are not left at nursery. The authority has no insurance to cover the loss of such personal items. Claims submitted are likely to be met only where the authority can be shown to be negligent.

Personal Belongings

Jewellery is discouraged from being worn at nursery in case of an accident/items being lost or stolen. Regrettably under Health and Safety guidelines, wearing of earrings is strongly discouraged.

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 the establishment. Parents/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.


We also discourage parents from coming to nursery in their PJ’s

Suitable Clothing

Children have the best fun when they are doing messy work. Aprons are provided, however this is no guarantee against accidents so please dress your child in suitable clothes.

Please, ensure your child has suitable outdoor clothing as we have daily outdoor activities planned, regardless of weather. Welly boots are very helpful on wet days.

There are forms of dress which are unacceptable in establishment, 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.
