Yeah that is what I was thinking.
Maybe black leggings with sandals and a long top and maybe a black blazer?
The dress code says, No jeans, no trainers, and no branded clothing etc... and also sensible shoes?

Maybe leave that to the 2nd day as your first day gonna be first impressions so over dressed is better than underdressed.

So what would be best for the first day? As I want to feel comfortable as I am planning on working with smaller children, so more activities would need to be done, for example they sit on the carpet and things like that?

Ahh, well I don't think I own any proper black trousers? Although leggings are tight, wouldn't they be okay with a long top and black blazer?

I think leggings would be ok, as long as you wear something like a skirt (I'm sure they would be fine with a school skirt) or even trousers on top. I know you said you don't have any trousers but maybe on the first day you could talk to one of the staff members there and ask them if what you wear is appropriate and what ideas they have. Plus, they won't make a big deal out of it if what you wear is slightly different to their expectations. As long as you show them that you are the type of person they want to employ. Good luck anyway!

Well I don't think my skirt would be acceptable as the type of skirt people are saying is a tight long skirts, like office ones, which I don't own. Neither do I have black trousers, basically all I own is leggings, I want something to feel comfortable in, and I was thinking, legggings, sandals and a long floaty top with a black blazer?

Ok, well maybe (I don't know if this is possible now) you could borrow a friend's skirt or your mum's or even quickly pop to the shops and get a cheap skirt, if they have the right one. Since, it's the summer, I guess sandals would be acceptable. As for the top and blazer, those are fine. Think of it this way, what's the worst they can say? 'Go home and get changed'. They wouldn't do that. The most they would do is advise you on what to wear the next day, but most likely you will be fine

Smart dress code...Specifically says no jeans, no branded clothing and no trainers so jeans and chinos are a no no
