DS has been going to the same daycare since he was 6 months old (he'll be 2.5 in January) but things have not been going great lately at daycare, so we decided to switch him to a preschool. It wasn't anything bad, really, but it just seemed like he wasn't thriving in that environment for a lot of reasons and there was a point that we thought he might get kicked out for hitting (I don't think discipline is her strong suit.) She can also be very condescending when talking to me.

Anyway, she was very upset when I gave our 30 day notice because she said she had no idea we were looking to switch. I told her I didn't want to bring it up unless we knew for sure. Anyway, things were a little cold for a while during drop off and pick up but seem to be better. We are coming up on the 30 day mark and am wondering, do I get her a gift as a thank you? Would that be inappropriate? I know this is going to be hard for her because she loves DS so much and I feel a little guilty about that but, ultimately, I have to do what is right for my son.
Sorry for the ramble...this has been an ordeal.
