Back To School Essentials Guide

Back to School Guide Miami Mom Collective

Miami Mom Collective, Miami’s premier parenting resource, is thrilled to announce our Back To School Essentials Guide. This guide features the best resources we’ve found to ensure that your child has a smooth transition this school year.

We’ve had a BLAST this summer at our Summer Play Dates, 5th Annual Birthday Bash, enjoying our Summer Essentials, Staycationing in town, and more! But as they say… all good things must come to an end. 

The new school year is just around the corner. This time can often feel like a new start or clean slate as we begin new routines, but there are many challenges that come with the start of the school year.

It can sometimes feel daunting trying to get our kids everything they need for their classes, nervous that we might forget to send them with something important. With that in mind, we’ve rounded up some of our Back To School Essentials to make your school shopping a little easier. We also wanted to let you know about a few super unique brands that we’re loving!

Check out the brands below, then give us feedback in the comments. We want to hear from you to know your BTS Essentials!
