If your child is at preschool all day, you can make nap time easier with familiar cozies, labeled with your child’s name. Using your own bedding also helps deter lice infestations.
Some preschools require slippers as “indoor shoes.” Go for a warm, no-slip pair.

Usually preschools are stocked with oodles of art and educational supplies, but certainly
ask your school or teacher if you should provide any glue, paint, paper, pencils, crayons, etc. It’s a good idea to stock up on these items at home, too, to keep the creativity going and growing.
