Daycare teacher gift card amount?

My son just started daycare last week. He only goes Tuesdays and Thursdays ... so he’s only gone 3 times now. With the holidays coming up, I’m thinking about getting one of the teachers a gift card. First of all, how much do you think is appropriate? Secondly, is it weird to only give one of the teachers a gift card? He’s really taken a liking to one of them so I don’t know the other ones very well. (He had a rough first two days and she basically held him the whole day, and each time we’ve dropped off/picked up, he’s ended up going to her... so I want to keep her happy and for her to feel appreciated.) Thoughts?

    My son goes 5 days a week and loves one of the teachers. I bought a $50 gift card for her and a big cookies and chocolate gift basket for the daycare staff.

    I think all his teachers from his classroom should receive a little token of appreciation. There isn't a "I" in team. As a infant teacher, if this ever happened, I would make sure to keep it fair for everyone and if I get the gift card, I would split it with my team. 💓

    Oh jeeze! I’m glad I asked because I definitely didn’t think of it like that. Thanks for the feedback!
