We have a great relationship with schools, but the proof is in the pudding – so please feel free to read the testimonials and feedback from some of the schools we support. If you have a testimonial, we can add – please share it with us:


Little Forest Folk, London area. 

We’ve been fans of these wellies for a long time now and we always recommend them to our families as part of our kit list because in our opinion, they are durable, sturdy and just fantastic at keeping little feet warm and dry when playing outdoors every day. We’ve tested out many different kinds of footwear for our children and these are by far the best.” Leanna Barrett, Co-Founder Little Forest Folk

Jigsaw Nursery, Gilsland

“I discovered the wellies on Face Book and ordered a pair for my son. They were fantastic at keeping feet warm, so I spoke to Simon about ordering some for the school. When the wellies arrived, we marked the sizes on the backs and the children look for the shoe size on the soles of their shoes - it’s matching numbers for math’s in a fun way. The wellies are super easy for little ones aged 2+ to put on and take them off themselves.

We live in a rural setting and 40% of the children here come from farms. Like all our children, they love being outdoors and when we know their feet are warm, we can encourage them to stay out for longer. Mrs. Barwick, Jigsaw Nursery Manager

Woodland Outdoor Kindergartens

“We’re outside 8 hours every day in all weathers and the children are required to wear appropriate waterproof clothing and footwear. We find Warm Wellies are extremely durable, the neoprene lining keeps the children’s feet warm with adequate grip on the sole to play safely without slipping. They also benefit from a reflective hanging loop. We would recommend The Warm Welly Company to any outdoor or forest school nurseries, the wellies are fantastic and the service we receive is always very friendly and efficient.” Woodland Outdoor Kindergartens, Glasgow

Hunter Hall, Penrith

Challenges and activities in an outdoor environment are a brilliant way of encouraging gross motor skills (physical development). Our parents provide appropriate coats for outdoors and wellies - which are left at school. Maggie and Forest already wear their Warm Wellies and never complain about cold feet. We have a new link with The Warm Welly Company and included them on our recommended kit list. Mrs. Griffiths, Hunter Hall Head of Lower School and Early Years
