It varies from pre-school to pre-school, but usually they recommend a complete change of clothes labeled with the child's name on it, a second pair of shoes, a small travel pillow and small blanket for nap time; a lunch (again label the lunch box). If you call the pre-school and ask someone, they'll be able to tell you exactly what they recommend you send with him. Good luck!


As a mom of 2 preschoolers here's a list of things I either do - or would if they weren't provided by the school - keep in their backpacks

- a full change of clothes that is season appropriate and fits (accidents happen!)

- a small snack

- something to comfort them if they are upset (a small toy or a family picture)
