Alternative Approach to Nursery Staff Uniforms
Why should nursery staff wear uniforms? Nursery and pre-school staff have with no doubt one of the toughest jobs. Comfort and practicality are essential in order to give the best care to children. However, first impressions are equally important, that’s why nursery staff uniforms play a vital role. High quality uniforms make nursery staff feel valued, reflecting in the service they deliver to children and parents.
Nannies and nursery nurses have traditionally worn uniforms. The image of nursery nurses wearing demure cotton dresses and starched white pinafores goes back to Victorian times, when uniforms were considered essential in inspiring authority. Nowadays, that image has changed and nursery staff uniforms have an informal and relaxed appearance.
Many nurseries are now keen to have uniforms for many reasons. Nursery staff uniforms show a great level of professionalism and give a sense of identity to the staff feeling part of the same team. Nursery staff uniforms are appreciated by parents, as the parents can recognise the staff straight away. The children also know who to go if they need help, so it will be easier for them to find their carers.
Nursery staff uniforms help the organisation of the team as well. First of all, as said earlier, they help distinguishing parents from the staff. Then, wearing different colours, the staff can be divided into smaller teams which become very easy to recognise for both children and parents. Furthermore, nursery staff uniforms can have embroidered logos contributing to that level of professionalism.
