Comfort: It is most important that the clothes you are selecting for your child are comfortable for the entire day wear. Kids perform multiple physical activities in playschool.

Cleanliness: The clothes you pick for your child should always be clean. This not only creates a good impression but is very important for the health and hygiene of your child. Also, make sure the clothes are ironed to add to that first impression
Dress Special: Dressing up girls in cute frocks or skirts is a preferred choice for day one but remember to make her wear cycling shorts underneath for comfort. Your little boy will look cute and well dressed in properly tucked in shirts to give that official first impression
If you child indulges in outdoor activities or sports in the play school, it is better to make them wear comfortable lowers, shorts or pants irrespective of gender.

Right Fit: It is very important that the shoes you are making your child wear are not only leaving a style statement but are of proper fit. A child’s feet are very delicate, too tight or too lose shoe can harm your child’s feet
Comfort: Sports shoes are the best for playschool. Avoid shoes with lace as small children cannot tie it and open laces may cause the child to trip. Footwear which is open like flats slippers or sneakers or high heel bellies is equally bad for the child

- Make the hairs well
Hairs are very important in making or breaking the entire look. Here are simple tips to make your child’s hair look good
Short Hair: Short hair look good when they are properly trimmed and neatly combed, so make sure that you get a nice hair cut done for your child before the day one and comb them properly to give that neat first impression
Long Hair: Long hairs should always be tied back. It will not only look neat and tidy but would be easier for your preschooler to manager. If you have a girl child and she has long hairs, you can braid her hairs in a stylish manner to make that first impression
* Irrespective of hair length, hairs should always be clean
