I think the hats is a little over the top. Although there may have been a reason like head lice or something. In that instance I would rather wash a hat everyday than my child get head lice.
The drink bottle, I would think you would want to wash it everyday! They get gross so quick. The carers don't only have to wash your child's drink bottle, but the rest of the children's as well. I wash my children's bottles out everyday, although they are now in school.
The carers aren't being paid extra when your fees are raised. I would have thought you would rather the cares supervising your child and interacting than spending time washing hats and bottles.

I would take home the drink bottle daily to wash out and the hat weekly to wash.

I take dd drink bottle and hat home each day I wash the drink bottle out each night and wash the hat once a week. I don't really see the big deal in washing a drink bottle out each night, washing the hat each night is a little ott though

I'm not too sure what the big deal is about the water bottle, child care workers are already overworked and underpaid they don't need to spending extra time cleaning out 20 drink bottles every night when it's easier for the parents to take them home and do it. Also the complaints about the $2 a week increase, I'm not sure the exact percentage but I think it's roughly 80-90% of childcare centres are now not for profit centres, the extra $2 you pay a week doesn't go towards the owners or even the staff it covers increases in rent, electricity, phone, food and all the art and craft stuff that they have for the kids. Most of those costs increase every year so it makes sense that the childcare centres would have their fees increase too so that they can cover their expenses.

I would rather the teacher's spent time supervising & playing with my child than doing the washing up.
I wouldn't be washing the hat every day, once a week would be plenty.

I don't think I've ever wash DDs hat, she's 3 & her head grows so quickly we're forever having to buy a new hat.. And I've lost a few too.
Drink bottles I understand but yeah, I just pack her stuff up and leave it in her bag.
