Okay my DS 2.2 is moving class after easter and I have been told he has to wear a uniform which they sell, the tops r £11 each, I think this is absurd as i will need to buy at least 5 ( one for each day at least)which he will probably grow out of tomorrow, I am not going to chage his nursery he loves it but I just think this is tooooooooooooooo young

okay sorry rant over

can you buy them second hand?

MerlinsBeard · 10/04/2007 16:16

why would you have to buy 5? will your DS have 5 school jumpers when he goes to school?

its prob so its easier to identify which children belong to the nursery and which are accompanying them to and fro

hahahaha good joke.
are you serious?
you need to get a new nursery.
I mean WTF??? you are being supremely ripped off for absolutely no reason

what will happen if he doesn't wear the uniform? will he have to sit on the naughty step??
is this a private nursery?

Ds's nursery wear a uniform once they are in the pre school room (so aged 3.6 ish).

Sweatshirts are about £8 and the polo shirt about £6 IIRC.

I prefer it, less hassle in the morning.

DD is in a nursery too that has this. I htink it is crazy (although it will mean that DP will not send her to nursery in her PJ top like he did once - 'I don't now what her clothes look like').

In our nursery you have to buy the bottoms elsewhere and I fond it impossible to find a grey skirt or triusers to fit her. Finally found a light grey track suit bottom in Adams.

Why do they do it?

Get's them ready for school I was told. Eh?

belgo · 10/04/2007 16:20

did you not know this when you signed him in for the nursery?

harpsichordcarrier · 10/04/2007 16:21

less hassle than what? it's surely precisely the same as putting on any other sort of clothes.
what is the point of putting tiny children in uniform? a 2.2 yo? I just don't get it.

NuttyMuffins · 10/04/2007 16:21

They can wear whatever bottoms they like at Ds's, I buy cheap joggers from asda or sportsworld.

speedymama · 10/04/2007 16:22

Wait until he hits 3yo. My DTS nursery started giving them homework.

drosophila · 10/04/2007 16:22

I knew but I thought it was from aged 3 which I can live with. I just assumed I guess.

harpsichordcarrier · 10/04/2007 16:24

Christ's sake the world's gone mad.
let the little children wear clothes the clothes they want. how about little children wearing different colours! goodness gracious whatever next. and fgs homework?!?!

I think if u dont put your LO in the uniform the mummy has to go on the naughty step. As thats one min for each year I am going to be there a long time...ha ha

I am being ripped off....i have got so many clothes for him which he now just wont be able to wear all week....I wont be buying anymore in the future

I will buy 5 as I organise DS's clothes on Sunday as DH has to get him dressed and I dont have time in the week and I cant be relied on to make sure I do the wash.. ( the 5th one is a spare he will take in)

Harpsi I agreee I think it is crazy.

NAB3 · 10/04/2007 16:37

I would suggest you could manage with 3 as you will be constantly washing with a little one anyway.
The nursery my daughter used to go to had an optional tshirt and jumper which were quite pricey. Don't see the point myself.

And as for not ruining home clothes, clothes are so cheap these days at supermarkets I hardly think it is saving anything.
