From clothes, to backpacks, pencils, and supplies, Centrepoint has you completely covered. Why drag yourself, and your kids, all over town to get the necessities when they can all be found in one amazing place? Check out our handy check list to make sure you have all the essentials and give your tiny academics the tools they need to start the year in style.



Could You Put That In Writing?


Every kid is going to need the tools of the trade when it comes to writing and craft time. Centrepoint is the place to go to get all those items in one full swoop! You'll easily find crayons, markers,  pencils, glue sticks, notebooks, paper, scissors, folders, and more. Let your kid's personality and interests really shine by shopping Centrepoint's massive selection of school supplies. There are tons of styles and designs to choose from. We love the Funko Pop! pencil toppers, like this one featuring Ariel from The Little Mermaid.

Do you remember click pens? You know, the pens where you could click down and select a different colored ink from the same pen? Yeah, you can find them here, too. An extra might somehow end up in your cart for yourself.

Keep Those Germs Away!


All us moms know that school time usually means that kids are sharing more than just a classroom. Yup, we're talking about germs. If you've got a kid who has managed to make it an entire school year without coming down with some sort of cold, color us impressed!  Thankfully, Centrepoint also has you covered when it comes to school supplies to help your little stay healthy. You'll want to pick up some hand sanitizer, tissues,  anti-bacterial wipes, and likely a box or two of zipper type bags.


Bag It Up!


Since summer vacation, your child has probably discovered the newest latest and greatest thing. They want it, and they want it now. That means that last year's backpack featuring unicorns is completely passe.  It's all about cats now, duh!  As for that lunchbox that had the characters from The Incredibles plastered all over it? Well it's not even cool any more. To be super cool, it's all about The Avengers this year! Yes, kids can be incredibly fickle. But, once again, it's Centrepoint to the rescue! Dazzle your children with tons of fantastic options when it comes to backpack and lunch bags. The only problem you might have is making them pick just one for the year, and not one for every day of the week.

Walk This Way


Let's face it, kids grow like weeds. Sometimes they need an entire size up in clothing and shoes within the same year! Thankfully, Centrepoint has an impressive inventory when it comes to shoes for both boys and girls. Whether your mini needs new sneakers, dress shoes, sandals, boots, or loafers, you'll find them for those tiny, or not so tiny anymore, feet here. We love these adorable Frozen style Mary Janes for girls.
