    Default Kindy Sheets - where to buy?

    Hi,

    My child is starting Kindy next year and I have just been advised that we need to provide a fitted and top sheet for rest time....

    Does anyone know where I can purchase these or recommendations?

    Thanks in advance 😀

    Assuming it's just cot/bed sheets? That's all my DS has for day care. You can get them from Kmart, big w, target all stores like that.

    I think they are the stretcher type beds as he is 4...

    So do you think they would still fit ok?

    I wasn't sure if normal cot sheets would fit but thought normal bed sheets might be too big, hope that makes sense....

    Oh yep. From what I can remember from working in day care it seemed like just normal cot sheets? Someone might know more than me but I'd say cot sheets would work? My DS is still in a cot so I'll need to know the answer eventually anyway lol

    Cot sheets are definitely the way to go. Or you could sew your own

    Great thanks heaps, might just check out Kmart, Big W etc to see what they have and then put some type of embroidery or something on them to personalise them a bit and so he can recognise his own sheets...

    Thanks again for your replies 😀

    I made some - the kindy had patterns - they were just a hemmed rectangle with some elastic on the diagonal at each corner.

    My son just uses a fitted cot sheet for the stretcher type beds. The Kindergarten said it was fine but he would have to take them off each day as they can't stack them otherwise. The other option was to put some elastic on and folding the corners of a flat sheet to make the beds stackable. I bought the elastic but never got around to it so he just took a fitted cot sheet. If you had a child doing a couple of years of Kindy or younger siblings who would use them then buying the special sheets might be worthwhile.
