I used to go through paper towels then I bought Kitchen towels. I am constantly wiping down counter and cabinets and stuff. I must go through about 6 or 8, maybe more hand towels per day.
I hardley ever use the paper towels anymore.
It took some getting used to but I like it now. I think the towels do better also.

With the daycare, I can see going through 2 rolls a day.
you might want to try is to squish the roll so it does not roll as
freely on the spindle. This will help reduce “paper run-away” excess use.
Paper towels, that will be a bit tricky. Thing is, I have a roll of
paper towel that I bought 6 years ago, before I moved here, and have
not used it up. I use cleaning cloths that are washable.
daycare, you might want to get some inexpensive wash cloths and hand
towels to use instead of paper towels. Just have the stacks handy
and a basket to toss the dirties into. You’ll be amazed at how easy
it actually is to do this once you get into the habit.
I also find
that towels clean better than paper towel. I’m sure the toilet paper
trick should help with small children, though.
