Are yall going to do anything for the kiddos teachers at day care for the holidays?

I was thinking of baking cookies/brownies and filling tins or something for the various teachers/office personnel. What do you think?

We do gifts every year, the last 2 yrs I have just done gift cards, usually $20 to some place local, I think I will do that this year too. You can never go wrong with cookies though! I would like if some gave me food LOL

We don't do gifts for the teachers anymore. Now that the big kids are older there are too many teachers that we would have to buy/make something for. If I make a batch of cookies near the holiday I might send some to Day Care with Noelle, but I don't think that I will go out of my way to get a gift. (But then again, we are having just a few issues with her care providers at the moment so I am just ever so slightly bitter towards them at the moment)

When I did do gifts for the teachers I did something like a Starbucks gift card or a tin of homemade goodies.

Same here. TBH it never even crossed my mind to get her teachers anything. We probably won't, seeing as most times now I have an issue with something.... July can't come fast enough!

We did cash last year ($20) but Julie is in a new center now....I'm not sure if I can do that this year. They are going thru a transition with a new director and she's had so many teachers....so I'll decide after I get the teacher list what I'll do. I'm thinking of gift card and some homemade cookies.

Alie was only in daycare for 1 Christmas, but we did get her provider and the assistant something. Yes, we had issues with them at times, but the bottom line was that they took amazing care of her and she loved going there and she loved them (we still go back to visit, 18 months after I took her out to be a SAHM). It was an in home daycare tho, so just 2 people that we bought for. I got the main woman a glass teapot with blooming tea (because she's a tea drinker) and the assistant got an Amazon gift card.
