    Wearing your advertising

    Wow, i just got a embroidered sweat shirt (hoodie) from vistaprint.ca

    lp.aspx.jpg

    Its very simple and says Valerie's Home Daycare with my logo in the top left side.

    I have had it for 2 days now. I was at the store the last night and had taken off my winter coat. I had a family come up to me and ask about my daycare. The mom said she saw my sweater, that's how she know I was a provider.

    I only got it because I needed a new sweater and thought it would be nice to be able to write at lest part of it off (advertising) if not all of it. I like that fact that I has already started paying off.

    I sent a little extra and had it embroidered. I looks really nice. I am very happy with it. I am also think of getting a matching hat.

    Cool! Do they have things like T-shirts that the kids could wear? I really want a set of matching shirts for the kids (I already have sunhats) and it would be cool if they had my daycare name on them!

    They do have T-shirts for kids, but they are not embroidered. I got an adult one a few years ago and it didn't take long for the design to start coming off. Hopefully they have improved on them since them.

    So many times I have thought of ordering a neon colour of shirt or hat to put on my dckids so that they are much easier to spot at parks when there is a large crowd. I get such a feeling of sickness in my stomach when I can't find one behind a pole or something even though it's just for a few seconds. The engraving of my daycare's name would just be a perk. Maybe this spring!

    I would make sure the parents are ok with this first. As a parents I would not be happy if my provider did this for safety reasons. Not all kids understand that just because someone knows their name, that person can still be a stranger. With a park full of kids it would make it easier for someone to get the kids attention and lead them away.

    No, I would never put the child's name on the hat, besides they would be reusable for the next batch of children, I would put my daycare name on the hat or tshirt, but I've often thought that a nice neon colour would be so wonderful and easy to spot. At the park where we play there is a Montessori school on the corner and when they have recess all of a sudden we are over run by about 100 children and I have to gather my little ones quickly to get out of there.
