We are moving our DS (3.25 yrs old) to a preschool program starting next week. He's been in a wonderful in-home daycare since he was a little baby. They have taken amazing care of him. They were willing to CD and feed EBM - both hard to come by around here! It was a tiny place with 6-7 kids and 2 adults. The kids call the people Grandma and Papa. Soooooo sweet. Its time for us to move on though - he needs more structure and curriculum. He had a year of preschool last year (3 days/wk) and was at daycare the other days. He loved the more structured day with art projects and songs and all that good stuff.
So... with a bit of a heavy heart, we're leaving our beloved daycare. We'd love to give them a gift but don't know what to give. $$ is tight for us so we can't do anything extravagant. What would you do?
