My dd just started VPK at a private daycare. My ds also started the daycare at the same time.. I dont know any of the kids or parents. My ds birthday is Oct. 6th and my dd is Nov. 9th. It will be their 3rd & 5th birthdays. My dd is not going to really make friends. She has some developmental issues we are working on getting diagnosed. She has no sense of social interaction as of yet. But my son has made a few friends. School has been in for two weeks. Would you find this too soon to recieve a birthday invite? I want my son to make friends and I would like to get to know the parents. But I also dont want to start off weird KWIM? Any thoughts/opinions/ideas etc are welcome. Also, if it is okay to invite them, how do I go about it? None of the other kids get picked up at the same time mine do so I wont run into parents you know... (sorry for the continuing paragraph, Im on my phone and it wont let me break it down) Thanks!

I don't see a problem with sending invites to a birthday party. I think it is a great way to get to meet the parents of the children my kid goes to school with.

My son met his best friend in Preschool on the first day of school. I had never met his mom until one day she came up to me and said that our kids played togetehr a lot...which I knew they had. We talked for a few minutes and then saw each other at pick ups a few times. His bday was the beginning of october too...one day as we were leaving she gave me an invite.

I wouldn't give invites to kids at a daycare...I would hand the invites to their parents.

I just read the part about not seeing the parents. Then it's tougher. I don't think it's appropriate to hand out invites to such young kids without ever knowing their parents. I would try to make an effort to at least meet the parents...like volunteer a few times in the class.

All the Invites I ever received from my daughters preschool were put in the parent cubby.  I don't know how your childs school works but at my daughters there was a parent cubby where paperwork and such goes and then the children had there own cubbies for jackets and whatever.....If no parent cubby, I would put them in the child's cubby, I doubt you can just stand around all day waiting for the other children's parents to arrive.  Good Luck!

kbumx4 - Thanks. Yeah they have cubbies all their artwork goes in along with their daily reports on what they ate etc and any paperwork for parents. So, do I just go in and let the teacher know Im dropping them in their cubbies? I cant just hang around waiting for parents. My kids only go three hours a day and only two other kids get picked up at noon like mine and they are in different classes/age groups. The other kids go all day so I never see other parents.. Ill just do that, stick them in their cubbies.. Good idea.. Thanks
