How typical is it for parents to give end-of-school-year gifts to teachers at a private school?

If it is usual or frequent, what types of gifts and how expensive?

(My 6 yo has 4 teachers for his kindergarden class.)

    Nicer than a bunch of small gifts would be for the parents to contribute to a single gift from the class. May 11 '17 at 9:38
  • Sorry, asking "how typical is it" is off-topic IMHO - it's highly localized (depends on culture, situation etc.), and also a poll-type question. For general information on handling gifts to teachers, it's a duplicate of the question linked.

  • I was a teacher in a classroom with sometimes 6 adults, (2 teachers, 4 ed assistants). The first day of school we sent home a request for no gifts. IF they wanted to do something, there was a list of classroom wants and needs and the trip fund was always in need of a boost as wheelchair transportation was extra expensive. So in primary school -- I'd give a gift to the classroom at the start of term(s) and a thank you note at the end. If school policy allows for home baking -- make something for all the staff of the school or everyone in the classroom. Your effort is most meaningful.
