There are certain essential supplies that any daycare or preschool needs to have on hand in order to run smoothly and keep the kids happy and healthy.
If the center cares for children who aren't yet toilet trained, diapering supplies are a necessity. Although many daycares ask parents to send their own diapers and wipes, parents sometimes forget or don't send enough, so it's wise to be equipped with diapers and disposable training pants in a range of sizes, as well as wipes and diaper rash cream. You'll also need enough changing pads and covers to accommodate the possibility of multiple changes at a time.
For naptime, you'll need comfortable, convenient places for the children to sleep. This may include portable cribs for babies and cots or nap mats for older kids. It's also crucial to have a well-stocked first aid kit, including a good thermometer. To prevent the spread of germs, stock up on hand sanitizer and keep it in convenient reach of teachers, especially around changing areas.
