What supplies should you have in your preschool? If you have decided to teach your preschool at home then you will want to ensure that your home is stocked for your child to learn. My list is here to give you ideas and options, it is by all means not necessary to have everything on there.
I also think that there are just some big ticket items that you will need like a place for your child to work. That may be a child sized table and chair, desk or just at the dinner table. I personally work with my little one on our coffee table.
You will also need a place to store all of your supplies and a place for your child to access some of their toys or educational activities. This can be done with a workbox style set-up, shelves or activity bags.
