DD (1yo) is in a lovely nursery (approx 3-4 days/wk since April)and staff v good. They have stayed open the last week despite facing severe weather& travel hassles themselves.In general v happy and feel fortunate to have her there.
I want to get them something small for Christmas. How much is appropriate to spend? I truelly think whatever they get paid is not enought for looking after our wee ones.
Any suggestions? Don't want to be over the top & will probably include a bit of home baking too.
Individual gifts are better than one whole, so something like vouchers, choclate, mugs, photo frames, e.t.c always go down well at my nursery. We get a hundred boxes of chocolates and bottles of wine (i have 4 bottles of wine sitting at home because i don't drink) mostly though.
I am prob going to bake something yummy for the staff in my DS's baby room to share and prob get a small something for his keyworker like £10-15 smellies set from boots or boots vouchers so she can buy herself. Like you i think they do a great job looking after our little ones and cant get paid much so i am happy to show appreciation at xmas.
