Last year, I gave my in-home daycare provider an extra day of pay as a christmas bonus.  She did a fantastic job and I felt she deserved it.  It was $25.

This year, Simon is in a daycare center.  I'm not quite sure if I should tip them or not.  I'm going to buy his teacher a gift.  Should I give the owner a christmas bonus too?  What are your thoughts?  The amount per day is $42 so I'm thinking a $50 bonus if I give anything. 

Thanks for your opinions!!!

I say no you shouldn't give i to the owner. Chances are the person that actually cares for your child will never benefit from it and they're the one doing the work. JMO

Thanks.  That's a little cynical though.  The owner does see my boy on a daily basis and interacts with all the kiddos.  It's not a huge center.

We always give ours a gift.  Last year we got her a candle.  This year we are getting her a Qdoba gift card.  She's almost like a second mother to me and my son.  I can talk to her about anything.  She even found a pastor to marry us on the spur of the moment (and gave us $100 wedding gift).  I love her and my son loves her.

That's really sweet.  It's awesome when you find someone who cares as much as you do about your child!
