    Default More for us to do at child care...

    There is a new lady in my dd class at cc and she informed me today that she would like me to take home my dd's hat and drinkbottle to wash every night and return it the next day. I pay $78 a day for my dd to go and I feel like the rise in cost so too is their expectations of us as parents. I don't have time to wash a hat each night and surely it would take 5 minutes to wash out drink bottles for the next day. I worked in cc for 7 years and we just did those things.

    I dont understand why she would want hats washed every night? Weekly i could understand but not nightly. As for drink bottles i dont have an issue with as we used to supply our own and took all of 2 secs to wash it each time.

    Perhaps they've had lice and that's why they want hats washed?

    I was thinking that however all the centres i have been in have washing machines and dryers and for headlice we have usually always been given a letter to say its around or a botice on front door.

    That seems really unreasonable to me. What if you don't need to do a load of washing every night, what are you meant to do, hand wash it? I guess it depends on whose property it is. Theirs =they wash it, yours = you wash it when you choose, not when CC tells you to.

    That seems pretty weird to me. Most our kids hats stay at the center in their hat pockets every day all year. We wash them if they get pretty grubby or contaminated from body fluids (urine etc) and some our childrens hats have been at the centre now for five years.
    I don't take dd's hat home except by accident. I don't take her drink bottle home either I just rinse it out in her room and refill it and put it back on the drinks tray. But dd is probably one of 5 -10 kids out of 100 who take drink bottles as we have water trays in each room and drink containers outside. The other kids patents take them and refill them daily (most don't being water in them though)

    Take the hat home and take the drink bottle home. Keep them both in your DD's CC bag. Pretend you washed them. As if they would know the difference.

    We don't provide drink bottles at my DC. As for washing the hat, well I couldn't tell you the last time I washed his hat tbh. That's a bit embarrassing, but it's true.

    I have just started my kids in daycare, 2 days a week and I just already did take their hat and drink bottle home and bring it back each day... I don't see the issues with having to take the drink bottle home and cleaning it, I do dishes after dinner each night, so thats no biggy. i do wonder why they want the hat washed each night though? I wash my kids hats rarely, so I can't ever see mysef doing it nightly. I would ask them why they want that and if they seriously think you wash clothes nightly.
