Re: What does your childcare/ preschool do for birthdays?

Usually have 2 shifts (6am to 2 or 3 and noon or 3 to close) with 2 staff (teacher and asst) in each. There is usually a lot of shifting during nap times (lunch for staff). Even on a normal day you'd have 4 people in the room plus whoever is covering lunch unless the staff hours overlap. The teacher should be constant and usually the assit is as well but a lot of places float assits and only have the 2 teachers or lead (In the afternoon it might not even officially be a teacher just a qualified lead) are fixtures in the class.
yes I understand what you are saying but there was obviously lack of communication between the caregivers because no body knew this mom was coming.....and worse, nobody cared even when she did get there. thats not a quality place in my book.
