Does anyone have a child in daycare/preschool with a longer list than your students? I hate that parents have to purchase so many things for school, but they are necessary items. My child received a daycare supply list that may total $50 or more...does this sound extreme? I must buy 2 reams of copy paper, sticky notes, sharpies, batteries, outside toy, 2 pkg. paper plates, and it goes on and on and on. It just seems like the things I ask parents to bring are directly used in their child's education...which is a free public education. I PAY this business to care for my child, and I am being asked to supply things that I feel are "business expenses" and that they should not be asking me to provide. What do you think??
