When you are planning to take your child to school for the first time, it is recommended that you keep in mind the policy of the school on matters of the dress code, for instance in some religious institutions especially Islamic ones, they emphasize on covering a significant part of the body, Catholic institutions may require the use of an uniform and so on. Furthermore, the color of the uniform is emphasized in most schools to ensure that all the students are in the same dress code.

Additionally buying a school uniform earlier enough makes it easier for you to find the right size for your child, the right size means that the child is quite comfortable in the uniform and also you will not buy another uniform since they will not get smaller. Other than the official school uniform, there is the physical education kit (P.E); these kits could be bought at the school since most of them have school logos emblazoned on them. School shoes are also part of the school uniform, thus they should suit well with the requirements of the school.

School bags are very necessary since they will carry all the school stationery or even the lunch kits. The right size of the school bag is one that will hold all the requirements without squeezing them or over loading the bags, the bag can be a back pack or any other type of a bag. It is advised that you let the child to choose their own bags so that they will not have a lower self esteem because of the bag you bought them. There are schools that require the bags to suit the school uniform though.

Stationery is another essential requirement that you need to buy.

Textbooks can also include dictionaries for languages that are offered at the child's school. Other stationery requirements can include pens, crayons, pencils, atlases or even the mathematical geometrical sets.
With all the requirements mentioned above you are now ready to send your child to school, if this is the first time for the child to school it is necessary that you encourage them with positive things about school since it is normal for the child to have fears about the school. Of much importance anyway is that you get all the requirements that are usually asked for by the school when it has accepted to admit a child in their institution, shop for these requirements so that you avoid the crowd that will be there when the school opens.
