Your daycare checklist

Your daycare checklist

Whether your little one is starting daycare or kindy - it can be exciting but also feel daunting. Here is a helpful checklist of items and equipment to help you and your little one feel prepared and supported. 

Feeling organised will help you and your little one settle in along with some home comforts that help keep routine and familiarity. 

It's best to check with your daycare what they provide and what you'll need to bring yourself.

Daycare does come with its fair share of germs so it's always helpful to have a thermometer, probiotic, medicine and a nose snot sucker in the house. 

Don’t forget to label EVERYTHING! Even shoes.
