How to Dress for Success in Preschool:

Preschool is the perfect environment for exploring new concepts and trying new activities. The goal of KOG Preschool is to ensure every child feels confident about exploring the world around them. Parents can help in building this confidence by following the tips below.

  1. Make sure your child is dressed for mess. If children need to worry about their clothes getting dirty, they cannot focus on trying new things such as paints, markers, stampers or the art of digging in the sand.
  2. Dress children in close-toed shoes with socks. This is for safety purposes as well as for comfort.
  3. Many times there will be art projects and important notices sent home. Please check your child's backpack or tote bag on a regular basis so you do not miss any important news from your child's classroom.
