I'm going to add that my kids are in high school now and they both have stains on some of their uniform tops that won't come out.  

The tops get worn anyway!

That is ridiculous!  And quite nasty, ie, shaming parents like that is just not on.  Very curious to know what sort of day care centre this is.  I would turn it back on them and ask what their philosophy is in relation to messy play (which has been shown to be very beneficial to child development).  If they say they incorporate messy play into their curriculum, then why on earth are they expecting parents to provide an endless supply of pristine clothes just to have them trashed?  To tell the truth, this kind of attitude would have me thinking about looking for another childcare provider as they seem to be much more focused on appearance than child development.  

Here are some articles you might find interesting.

all my kids clothes are stained and I don't stain remove any of them because they minute they get back on the same thing happens again. I would be telling the day care where to go.
