School Supply List

2021-2022

Lots of information in this email so that all of your questions about what your child needs for preschool are answered.


* All children will need a Backpack, Lunch Box, and Water Bottle.

* Each classroom has a specific school supply list.

* Each classroom has optional classroom wishes of supplies used frequently.


Please pay special attention to the information regarding backpacks; it is important to our teachers that all backpacks are large enough to fit everything inside.


We plan to post pictures, suggestions, and/or video in our FB group of the items listed for each classroom; if you haven't joined the FB group - here is the link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/350417596739649

All Classrooms - Backpacks

Each child will need a backpack to bring to school each day. When selecting your child's backpack, please be sure that everything will fit inside the backpack and that it has an outside pocket that can easily fit their water bottle. Recommended backpack dimensions would be: 14-16" H X 11-12"" W X 4.5" D.


Upon arrival at CPP, everything MUST be inside the backpack so that our preschooler's hands are free and ready for handwashing and sanitizing when they enter the classroom.


What needs to fit inside your child's backpack:

* 9x12 communication folder (provided by CPP)

* lunch box

* water bottle (should fit in the outside side pocket)

* 1 or 2 complete change(s) of clothing

* diapers or pull-ups for our toddlers and twos only; (threes and fours are in underwear)

* will allow your child to pack and unpack independently (threes and fours)


It is our experience that the backpacks smaller than the above dimensions will not hold everything and make it difficult for your child to be independent plus their art creations get folded and damaged.


Backpacks should be labeled with your child's name.

All Classrooms - Lunch Box

Each child will need a lunch box to bring their lunch to preschool each day. Lunch boxes are not placed in the refrigerator; so if items need to be chilled please include a small ice pack.


Lunch boxes should be labeled with your child's name.

All Classrooms - Water Bottle

Each child will need to bring a water bottle to school each day; we ask that it be placed in an outside pocket of their backpack allowing for easy access throughout the school day morning. Teachers will fill up the water bottles as needed.


Water bottles should be labeled with your child's name.

** Spring 2022 - the fours will also need a View Binder; we do not have classroom storage space to get these in August.


School supplies can be dropped off during preschool hours from August 3 -5 and from August 9 - 13 or be brought to Meet the Teacher Appointments. We prefer that they come in prior to the first day of preschool if at all possible; this allows our teachers to get everything set up or put away in classroom.


This also allows the first week of preschool to be focused completely on getting children transitioned to their classroom.
