From the moment my daughters went to kindergarten, another item of expenditure appeared in our family budget: Rebursements. Well, naturally, it all started with the fact that upon joining the group, they began to collect money for repairs. In the group of the youngest daughter they decided to change the windows for plastic, in the group of the older one – to buy a vacuum cleaner, toys and other paraphernalia.
Well, I, as a diligent mother, immediately handed over all the necessary money. If you add to this a bag of stationery, chemistry (powders, wet wipes, dishwashing detergents, etc.), fees for educators and children for gifts, and payment for the garden itself, a very tidy sum has come out. But it is necessary – it means it is necessary.
However, not all parents have passed. It is natural, because of their reasons and financial difficulties, not everyone can give such money at a time. Especially when you consider that the child is not alone. So it turned out that the plastic windows handed over to the New Year.
Then I became interested in when the windows will be. Winter in the yard. The teachers answered that the car with windows could not drive up to the group, since the garden’s territory was covered with snow (the aisles were cleared only for people), and in general it is very frosty now – you can’t put it … Do you know when they installed it? In May!
But the money collected on the slopes was not enough, and again the fees began … But now I don’t give up, because after a couple of months, my child moves to the next age group. Also the eldest daughter. Handed over, handed over, and now it was transferred. And now again we rent here, again for repairs, for painting, for curtains and so on.
It’s one thing when you put in one place and you know that your child will be in a comfortable group before graduation. And so it turns out that I tried, gave the money, went soap, painted, pasted for other people’s children. Well, the mothers of schoolchildren also grab their heads and say that the kindergarten is more flowers, but then …
And what to do? How to deal with requisitions? Who is guilty? I do not want to blame the head of the kindergarten for wasting money, as my friend’s mom also works as a head and grabs her head too … They don’t give anything to kindergartens! Even cleaning products are no longer available.
So they are forced to ask us, the parents, to add in the payment for additional funds in the form of purchased towels and toilet paper. And our teacher told me the other day that from next year everything will fall completely on our shoulders – and we will buy plates with forks …
