Charter School Pre-Orders


For your convenience and to ensure accuracy and availability of products, Charter schoolers now have the option to generate an online pre-order complete with product names and individual item numbers (skus) for each product, color choice or size. This gives you the ability to easily forward your list to your teacher and us the ability to gather and reserve your items while awaiting receipt of your official purchase order.

A Child's Dream must be an approved vendor for your Charter School. Each charter has their own process which usually involves our need to fill out, sign and submit forms. Please contact your teacher or Education Specialist or charter directly if you are unsure whether A Child's Dream is an approved vendor for your Charter School.


- Add products to your shopping cart
- Write both the school name and ES name in the Comments box at checkout
- Payment Method to select is Charter School Pre-Order
- Check your email for a copy of the order
- Forward to your teacher or ES

The order IS NOT FINAL until we receive an authorized purchase order from the school. Items on the order are reserved for two weeks allowing time for A Child's Dream to receive a Purchase Order from your school. Prices and availability are subject to change after that time.

Please note, a $4.00 special handling fee is assessed on orders missing skus (item numbers). To display the sku for a product with options click on your selection and the sku will be updated below the item name. Pre-orders automatically assign skus to products and you will see this on your emailed copy.
