If you ask parents for school supplies for preschool what do you ask for? I will teaching preschool next year. I haven't taught preschool for over 8 years. Our preschool is state funded and as you know there is no money. This year we will be lucky to get 60 percent of the money that the state owes us. Because of this there is little money for supplies this year, I will have to ask parents to bring in things. I need your help, because I haven't taught preschool in so long. I am not sure what I will need or what I should ask for. I don't want the list to be too big. What do you ask parents to bring?
