Sun Hats


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone

 

Hope everyone's been enjoying some nice weather.

 

It is lovely to be able to be outside for the whole session, but we are having trouble managing sun hats. Most do bring them in now but most can't keep them on their heads.

 

What do others do? Staff have suggested that we have playgroup hats that anyone can wear.

 

What do you think?

Children are asked to bring their own, but if they forget we have our own legionnaire type caps available.

 

The children know they HAVE to wear a hat or they won't be able to play outside and they all accept this and are very good at policing each other and telling us when someone's hat has fallen off! We also set up all activities in shaded areas.

 

Mind you, in this weather it's been too hot to go out!

We too have safari style caps. We just put these on all of the children even if they have brought their own as we just find it easier. And the same as calicojo-no hat you can't go outside!

We do the same... no hat, no outside in this very hot weather.

 

On the whole everyone is really good about it!!

 

But as already said it has been so hot that the children have chosen indoors as the cooler option!

 

We also have a selection of nursery hats to hand!

All the children in our setting supply their own hat which they leave with us but we do have spares for those who forget. All staff have to wear hats as well. Like others, our rule is no hat, no outside.

Slightly off topic but I've got to have a moan about all the parents who send their children, especially girls, in tops which dont cover the shoulders and then dont bother to apply sun cream. We do put cream on as a top up during the day but I cant believe that so many parents just presume we'll do it and dont bother. Moan over.

Hi

 

Thanks for all your replys. It is the first year for a long time that it has been a problems as we had out trees cut back late last year. Before that we were lucky to see the sun.

 

Only 2 weeks left now, so will muddle through but will buy a few spare and label them next year. Yes, it has been on my mind that staff should wear hats aswell!!!

 

Thanks
