With all this discussion lately about teachers, I thought I would set ever one a challenge.
Teachers/child care worker often have a Thankless job. They normally only hear from parents if there is a problem. So let's change that.
Sometime in the next 10 days find a way to thank your child teacher/child care worker.
It might be a nice little card/note or email.
Or you might prefer to send a flower that you have grown yourself, cake that you and your kids made.
Just a little something to say hey I appreciate you. Your doing a great job.
Any other suggestions would be great.

I've made it a point to tell DS's teachers how much he is enjoying being in their class and how I appreciate all that they do since he started school. We've been lucky and all his teachers so far have been amazing.
I've also told the CC boss that I think she's fabulous as one day she was filling in in my DD's room, and instead of taking over and being "the boss" she was asking for instructions from the Leader! Which I just thought was wonderful. So I made a point to tell her. I love our CC. She has fostered such a great group of people who all love the kids and their jobs, and they take the time to pick up on each child's interests and expand on them in activities. I hope the workers in my DD's room know how much I appreciate them - I've told them a few times that they are awesome, because they are!
I always give them presents at the end of the year too. It's such an important role they play in our kids lives, and I think that good educators deserve to be recognised and thanked for hello guys our kids reach their potential.

Awesome challenge! My daughters daycare portfolio came home this week for us to have a look at and it included a personalized letter to my daughter about all the things she has learnt so far this year and the things they love about her. I cried when I read it, it was absolutely beautiful. So I think I'll leave a note in it, thanking them for such a beautiful portfolio and for everything they do for her :-)

Great challenge!!! I'll have to sit that one out though as I just brought them a huge box of macarons for Bastille day. If I bring something else in the next 10 days they'll start wondering if something is wrong with me 😝

Challenge accepted. I love my kids' teachers. They are just amazing and I do tell them that! I think my kids would get a kick out of giving them some fresh flowers from the garden so that's my task this week. :-)

Great idea I always make sure to thank DS's carers every day and let them know how much he loves it there and gets so excited to go, and how much I can see he is learning from them. I also regularly bake something for the carers to share for morning or afternoon tea, and my DH gives them all a discount from his store if they buy anything. A lot of the parents at my DS's daycare do stuff like this though as it's a community daycare and everyone is quite involved.
I'll make sure I bake something extra special for them tomorrow to take in on Monday, and maybe pop a card in too this time

Great challenge! This week alone I have thanked 2 of my daughters teachers via email without even reading this post. The girls teachers both do a fantastic job, are kind and caring who deserve to be told.

DS is about to move up to the next room in childcare and I'd love to do something for the ladies in his baby room.
