Labelling Clothing

To help reunite misplaced clothing with the owner we ask that all items are marked with the name of your child. It makes it easier for us to return lost clothes, coats, shoes etc. If you wish to purchase high quality stick-in name labels we can recommend those provided by labelplanet.
