  • My Nametags – No more lost possessions at nursery

End lost property at your nursery while boosting your nursery’s funds…

Did you know that the average child permanently loses nine items per school year?

If we think about ten million school-aged children, this adds up to an eye-watering 90 million lost items every single year.

Parents are having to buy replacement items for stuff they’ve already bought once. The average parent is spending £2,000 replacing items that are lost throughout a child’s life at school.

That’s a huge expense on top of the existing school costs.

Having to re-buy these items is not only a financial worry but also has a negative environmental impact. Think about where these lost items end up and the extra resources used to produce the items being re-bought for the second or third time.

The quality of the item parents buy their children also suffers. Parents are more likely to opt for an item made of plastic or paper instead of a more expensive, durable and environmentally friendly material because they know it will most likely be lost.

Children are prone to losing their possessions. Coats, hats and even their favourite teddy can sometimes end up lost, never to be recovered again, and nurseries end up with an enormous lost property pile.

But there is a simple solution for this. As a teacher you are probably thinking about the time you’ve spent dealing with children who have lost an item of clothing or a toy, or speaking to an annoyed parent who is asking about a lost item and insisting it must be found.

Would it not have been great if they’d identified said item? This is where My Nametags comes in.

Labels help children, parents and nursery workers distinguish what is theirs from what belongs to another child.

Personalised name labels are a simple, fun and colourful solution to help you ensure that things do not get lost and that if they do, they can be returned.

Whether parents need to label a big or small item, want a unicorn or a ninja on their child’s labels, My Nametags has got it covered.

Read about the different types of labels and which are best for what.

Our labels have room for three lines of text so a child’s name, class, parent’s phone number or name of the nursery can all be added to the name tag, greatly increasing the chances of that item being returned to its owner.

At My Nametags we are passionate about providing the best name tags and helping reduce lost property.

We aim to deliver a versatile, easy-to-use product. Our labels are high quality and resist washing, drying and the daily rigours of school life.

My Nametags’ personalised name labels are made to be used everywhere by anyone. And while you are solving the issue of lost property at your school you can also boost your nursery’s funds as you are doing it.
