She only goes for 1 day a week and is leaving to start pre-school. I haven't got anything for her to take for the children or the staff. Should I? Am so busy with work at the moment and feeling so ill from being pg I have only just thought about it. blush

What do people normally do?

My dd just left her nursery after 2 years. She did 3 half-days a week. I gave a case of wine to the staff and baked fairy cakes for the children so dd could have a special goodbye tea.

If I were you I would pick up a cake on the way in so she can celebrate.

That's a good idea. Perhaps I will buy a cake for DD to take in and some nice chocolates for the staff (half of them are so young they probably only drink alcopops!)

That sounds perfect. I hope she has a nice last day and they give her a proper farewell.

Thank you. She is just excited about starting "school" but I feel quite sad about it.

Watch out for the taking cakes in to nursery a lot of nurserys have a policy on off the premises food.

Theres no fun anymore sad

I used to love it when the dc's brought a birthday cake in, shows so much thought for the other children (staff like a bit too obv)

Thanks for the warning. The amount of times DD has come home saying she has had cake for someone's birthday I don't think think they are that strict about it at our nursery! They are quite sensible about most things smile
