Dressing Skills

Preschool Power! features many dressing skill demonstrations - buckling, zipping, buttoning, and much more. The jacket flip is a technique parents tell us even their two can master after watching for a while.

A cast of small children will show your little one exactly how to do every skill listed below. No adults appear in these sequences and if any verbal instruction is given, it is in the voice of the little teacher. Many segments have cute songs attached to them as well.

All 'lessons' were taught to our child-teachers by certified Montessori professionals who will now show your child how.
