Celebrate child care providers across Iowa!

Each year, in the month of May, CCR&R and other state partners find ways to appreciate our workforce behind the workforce - OUR IOWA CHILD CARE PROVIDERS. Child care provides opportunities for families to go to work, children to learn, businesses to operate and the economy to grow. Child care providers are an “essential workforce.”

We need your help to celebrate and appreciate our essential workforce. On May 6, 2022, we are requesting all child care partners to reach out and thank their local child care workforce by posting the Provider Appreciation graphic, download here

In addition, we are celebrating #ThankYouChildCare all week by sharing graphics featuring Iowa Early Learning Standards (IELS) supports that enhance children's learning and development. Download and share any of the graphics below.
