I bake about 30 cup cakes for DD to take. Her kindy has up to 21 kids and 4 carers do I bake for that and a few extra. There are no egg or dairy intolerant kids in her class, so I just make sure it's nut free.
The class sings happy birthday and the teachers put one candle on the cupcake my daughter will be eating.
We're pretty healthy in this house, so it's always a low sugar, preservative free, homemade cake.

Daycare the parents buy a loaf of bread (85c aldi bread from me) and the cook makes fairy bread for the birthday kids room. Kinder (we go to a council run one) I baked a cake and sent it.

Our centre (council run) have a birthday cake that the cook makes. All the kids have a small piece of cake then fruit to go with it. They sing happy birthday and make the day really special. If the child isn't in on their actual birthday they will do it on the closest day. I think it's really lovely.

Seems like most daycares do a lot more than our one I don't even know if they knew it was his bday, because when I told the carer she acted surprised, and when I spoke to the director she also didn't imply that she knew
DS was in family daycare for 2 years before this and his bday was always made special, the carer even bought him a gift. I guess it was far more personal there, which I liked.

I'm a preschool teacher we have a plastic cake for blowing out the candles. The parents bring in cupcakes, cake or really whatever they want... As long as there's no nuts and we share it among the kids after we sing happy birthday they get stickers and stamps too. They should be celebrating their birthday even if it's a song or something simple

@SAgirl most centres have a program they use to mark attendance and lodge data, the two programs I used both alerted me when it was a child's birthday. So someone should know. We're only an after school care centre with bigger kids so we don't do cake or anything unless there's a few kids with birthdays on the same day. The parents complain when there's unhealthy items on the menu. But we make sure the birthday kid stands at the front while 30-40 kids sing/scream happy birthday and that always puts a massive smile on their face.

My kids daycare allow you to bring in cupcakes or mini muffins etc for birthday as long as the ingredients are clearly listed.
The kids have them with afternoon tea.
