“My child care provider has helped mold my daughter in to the smart, funny, beautiful little girl she is today. She will always have a place in our heart.”
Many parents feel the same way about their child care provider. Families form special relationships with the individuals who have been trusted to care for their children. Taking the time to chat with your provider at the end of the day and offering the extra “Thank You” now and again are appreciated. However, you might be wondering if there is something special you can do to let your provider know just how much you appreciate all that she does for your family.
The Friday before Mother’s Day is a day set aside every year to recognize your child care provider. This year, it is May 9. The annual day of celebration is designed to recognize child care providers, teachers and all educators of young children. So why not take the time this year to make this day extra special for your child’s caregiver?
Here are some ideas (adapted from www.providerappreciationday.org):
Your child care provider is special to both you and your child. Provider Appreciation Day is just one day set aside to recognize the work early childhood professionals do. Make sure to take time throughout the year as well, to let your child care provider know how much you appreciate the work she is doing with your child.
