I just put my 4mo in daycare last week (3 days per week) they are amazing helping us transition (baby still not taking a bottle). And I can’t imagine the year they have had putting themselves at risk.
What do other people give their daycare teachers and support teachers for the holidays? I was thinking 50 cash each but my husband thought that was too much.... I didn’t think it was enough but don’t have a lot of extra cash. Any tips? Do you give equal amount or more for lead teacher?
Thanks!

I’m a new associate to a T&E group, partner goes away on vacation and leaves me with a 706 to review and sign. The family is very wealthy. Decedent married for 60 years. Partner says it’s “just a DSUE election, decedent was ill for years, no assets.” Provides no records. Not even an admission the decedent owned a toothbrush. So I looked up the decedent’s home - it’s a joint asset. Partner was “surprised”, and still insists “no other assets”. I found file references to art and antiques.

So I have a Kindergarten student who daily struggles with emotional regulation. They will easily get really upset or angry. Then once they have calmed down are great. However, the teacher isn’t helping the problem.She expects a 5 year old can immediately listen to instructions and sit for extended periods of time. She doesn’t seem to try and talk him down but gets frustrated when he starts. I need help as I’m at my wits end. I want this kid to have success & the teacher to change her practice.
