Any daycare/sitter situation I know of doesn't cover lost toys. If its an absolute must have for comfort that's ok, but if its lost than its not my responsibility. My own kids lose toys in our own house, I can only imagine going to a new house! I understand the issue and its his fav but its not like a $50 item, what maybe $10-15? Chalk it up as a loss and move on! Explain to DS that sometimes very special toys should stay home.
