This year’s Provider Appreciation Day is May 11. Child care providers deserve a HUGE thanks for the dedication, love, patience and compassion they show our children every day. Many children are with their child care provider for more waking hours per day than they are with their parents. Providers are given not only the responsibility to care for our little ones through the most vital years of our children’s brain development, child care providers also teach our children the skills they will need to use as building blocks for learning and development for the rest of their lives.
Show your support and appreciation for your child care provider by joining the fun on social media.
