I'm sure a lot of families are making the very difficult decision of whether or not you're going back to work and whether or not your children will be attending school (and how they are!). I made the decision to go back to work in early childhood education and bring my children in with me. I can go more into details on my decision at another time, but for now..here are some tips and tricks for returning or starting daycare.
My biggest suggestion is to invest is waterproof dishwasher safe labels. And then label every single thing you send into school. I'm talking each shoe, pacifiers, clothes, pouches, lunchbox...EVERYTHING. The days get busy and especially now, teachers have so much cleaning and preparing added to their plates. So make it easy on yourself and them by labeling everything and it will 100% ensure that your items make it home to you each night. I've linked the labels I created for my kids below.
