What are you all doing re parents at nursery? We were think a big box of chocolates and a card for all the staff. Should we doing something special for key worker? Or should we be doing individual gifts/cards for everyone? What about other children? I remember giving cards to everyone in the class when I was at school but is this still the done thing? What about at nursery? Obviously wouldn't give cards to just some children not others so it's whole nursery class of nothing.
My ds is 3 and has been at nursery since 7mo. We do present for key worker (Usually £10-£15) and cards sent back to anyone who sends him one. Although only cards since last year, not while in baby room!
Following with interest. Last year we got them a big box of chocolates, will probably do the same this year. DS doesn’t seem particularly close to his key worker, I don’t think it means that much at his nursery.
I've do voluntary work with kids and while the gestures lovely, I hardly ever eat the chocolates etc and the amount can get ridiculous. I saw someone last year on a thread suggest a really nice basket of fruit so I'm thinking of that this year there have been loads of staff changes so dd2 isn't close to many of the staff yet. Key worker will get something personal though. Previously have got everyone Burt's bees lip balm / handcream little gift set they're outdoors so much in all weathers I figured they'd use them.
OK, something else for my to do list DS started about 4 weeks ago, only 2 days a week, so I don't really know any of the parents and he doesn't talk about any of the other kids. Might go down the wine/chocolates to share route.
I've done a few different things. One year I gave small bottles of Prosecco and mini panettones both the ladies who worked in DS's room, then last year I bought a posh chocolate advent calendar for the staff room at the start of December for everyone to share. There was only six staff in the nursery so they all had a few goes at opening it.
