Your baby is headed off to preschool! Congratulations. While you both might be a little nervous about this new transition (and that’s perfectly okay, by the way), there are exciting times ahead for your little one. One way to curb any anxiety your child might be having is to let them help pick our their clothes for the first day. They’ll love having this sense of ownership, and it’s a fun way for you both to get excited about the first day of school. We’ve picked out some adorable clothing options to get you inspired, and in the meantime, check out Kids Health and their list of additional ways to help ease any anxiety your child might be having about starting preschool. As Dr. Seuss wrote, “You’re off to great places, today is your day, your mountain is waiting, so get on your way!”
