We very much appreciate that our colleagues support our ethos and belief that children should play outside in all weathers and a saying that is often heard throughout the nurseries is “there is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing”.
We understand that not all of our colleagues have head to toe protective wet weather clothing and as part of our 52 improvements over 52 weeks we are going to provide some sets for colleagues to wear at work. So, whilst the children are jumping in puddles and enjoying the rain and staying dry, you will be able to do the same.
The make of the clothing will be Regatta, who operates a scheme called the Honestly Project.
The Honestly Project focuses on creating fantastic products which have been thoughtfully engineered for the great outdoors. Regatta strive to be committed to honesty and transparency in everything they do, every step of the way.
They are also part of the Ethical Trading Initiative – ‘It has been a priority for our business for many years that we ensure workers in our partner factories are treated fairly, with good working conditions. Since 2012, The Regatta Group has been a member of the Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI) where we joined as a foundation member. All corporate members of ETI agree to adopt the ETI Base Code of labour practice, which is based on the standards of the International Labour Organisation (ILO).’
We would love to see some photographs of you in your wet weather gear playing outside with the children! Please do share some in our Tops Day Nurseries and Aspire Training Team Facebook Group.
