Standard phrases for a kinderkrippe abschied letter

Hi All,

I am looking for a bit of language advice.

I need to write an Abschied letter for one of the teachers at my child's kinderkrippe. The teacher is really an assistant and has not spent much time with my child so I really just want to give some good wishes.

I am really stuck for what to write, a bit more detail than what i would normally write on a goodluck card is required :-)

Thanks for your suggestions!

Re: Standard phrases for a kinderkrippe abschied letter

All the kids parents are asked to give a letter, and I feel bad if I dont. The assistant is young and of course we want o thank her for the care she did give and wish her the best.

I just dont know how to write it in German? Any ideas, thanks.

Re: Standard phrases for a kinderkrippe abschied letter

Liebe (insert name here)

Vielen Dank für Dein / Ihr Engagement und die Zeit in der Kinderkrippe (name of Krippe)
Wir wünschen Dir / Ihnen für Deine / Ihre Zukunft von Herzen alles Gute!

Just pick the proper phrasing (if it's colloquiual - "Du" otherwise "Ihr"), and sign it. Have your child or children sign as well, or if too small, a little hand-print?

Does this help?

In the teacher's place, I would love just something scribbled (with maybe the child's name written by the parent and maybe a little photo) by the children I was close with. I'd probably just think "Meh" at something so cold coming from (the parents of) a kid I didn't really know.

Re: Standard phrases for a kinderkrippe abschied letter

My guess is, as this assistant apparently never really worked closely with the children/parents, she would be aware that the parents have been asked to write a few lines.

If it's for someone who knows my child, I'd favour something put together by the children, and be it "only" a potted flower with some wire-paper butterflies made by the wee ones, and a painting.

And that's only for starters. But as the OP wrote - the assistant didn't spend much time with her child.
