My child is switching playgroups now right before Purim. Do I tip the new teachers? If yes, then as much as usual, or a drop less?
And do I tip the old teacher? It wasn’t the most pleasant story behind switching, and I am upset, but that doesn’t erase the months my child was happy until now so maybe she still deserves a tip?
P. S. If I had money I would just tip everyone but I am extremely tight with money right now.

Maybe write a nice card to the new teachers saying how you are so looking forward to getting to know them and enjoying the new place? Then you can tip them nicely at the end of the year...
For the old teacher you can write a nice card thanking her for the pleasant months your child spent there... Maybe attach a bar of chocolate for a nicer effect.

Of course I don't know the whole story, and I come from a city where no one is expected to do anything specific, but giving a tip and a nice card might be a nice way to part from the previous teacher. To show that even if things didn't end well, you still appreciate the good times. That's what Purim giving is all about- reaching out and connecting.

Not sure about the old teacher but I would definitely tip the new one to start off on a good note. Saving the tip for the end of the year defeats some of the purpose- it’s nice to show hakaras hatov bht it’s also to foster good will

Since one of the reasons for giving mishloach Manos is to increase friendship "marbeh reiyus" I'd think that its very important to give to the old Morah, especially since things didn't end off on the best note. Don't know if you have to tip with money, but a mishloach Manos would probably be a nice gesture.

No.. not the old teacher!

New one can be something small but a nice note for sure!
