Re: What does your childcare/ preschool do for birthdays?
Preschool here was a co-op, so parents had to volunteer in the classrooms. So on birthdays, the parent was usually in the classroom as helper for the day. The child got a crown, and as parent helper, we'd bring a special snack for the class (we did cupcakes, but it was up to the parent what to bring). They would also sing happy birthday, and just make a big deal out of it. Kindergarten was much the same, they would get a crown, and the class would sing happy birthday. Parents could send in a treat if they wanted (and as I volunteered, I was welcome for the morning).
