    A lot of centres expect that with the water bottle. I've always had to bring it home each day and take it each morning, same with at school.

    I CAN tell you the last time I washed a hat in our house... Never! I didn't ever think of hats as needing to be washed! I guess I win the grot award

    Water bottle - I have two the same & he takes a clean one every day.

    Our centre has a sign that says 'please take hats home every week and wash' and I suspect I'm the only parent who does. It's not at all mentioned or enforced.

    Last centre I worked at though we washed the drink bottles every night and hats every fortnight.

    We use to wash the water bottles ourselves at dc as for hats..I washed them all when I cleaned the hat boxes so maybe once a month??? I've never asked a parent to do it!

    pfff.

    wash a hat every night? i dont think so! I wash DSs hat when it gets food on it, gets wet, or gets some other kind of grot on it, definately NOT something I do regularly.

    Drink bottles, our old centre we just left one there for DS, that is what they prefered, that way people didnt forget to bring them in, and i guess they are used to having the same on, so they know which is theres.

    The centre he is at i have no idea as he is only there one day a week, so i just bring his hat and water home anyway

    Yes you should wash a drink bottle every day... The little grubs share and back wash.. But hats.. I dont even do that weekly.

    Adding to my post... Kids also are not great hand washers think of all the lovely things they have touched then opened their bottle.

    We sent our own water bottle and take it home so it gets washed with the dishes.

    We also send our own hats. My son's hat gets washed...when he goes swimming or ends up in water.

    It would be impractical to wash them daily as they wouldn't dry anyway.

    Water bottle I have no issue with.It would be much easier for you to wash 1 water bottle a night then have the carer wash 32 kids bottles at the end of every day.
    As for the hats, that's just silly. No one washes their hat every day, my DD's wouldnt last a week if I washed it every day.

    We take out water bottle home every time only because DD will not leave her tinkerbell bottle out of her sight haha. DS water bottle maybe weekly got brought home so that was probably a bit grotty.

    As for hats, pfft! The centre does supply hats but also asks us to supply one but then never use our hat just the centre hat. They get washed if and when I remember as no one listens to me and puts then in the laundry basket!!
