  • Here Headstart is not allowed to ask for ANYTHING. I thought it a bit loopy because they couldn't even ask for recycled items like empty baby food jars. No lunch or snack either because they got it free from the school system, and they didn't want extra food there because of the way they do their lunches. Only think they need is a backpack.

  • I would imagine just a backpack, some tissues, some crayons, a pencil or two, an eraser. Oh, and don't forget the hand sanitizer. I am so all about hand sanitizer.

  • Call them and ask. She may come home with a list on Monday.

  • I dont believe she will need anything but a backpack. Being the nature of the program, and everything is paid for I dont know think they will ask for supplies like they would in Kindergarten.

  • i would just pack her a backpack with germx,crayons,fat pencil,and a snack, head start is pretty basic & the centers usually already have everything, they'll send you a list i she needs anything extra :) ~ check for lice EVERYDAY! :)

  • My daughter is in a program like that in Indianapolis, and she does not have any "required" supplies. Every once in a while they will ask for something, but it is not like a list - we got a note asking for Kleenex and sanitizers, but that wasn't even a requirement, I think that only half of the parents donated the items. We send Emma with her backpack, a lunch or snack, and that is it.
