Provider Appreciation - May, 2017
Provider Appreciation Day is held so everyone can appreciate the number and importance of child care workers. The early childhood profession not only plays a critical role in supporting healthy families and children but is also a key part of our local and national economy. It takes a dedicated person to be successful in the demanding world of today’s child care profession.
Daily winners were drawn and announced on Facebook.
