A message from ChildCare Aware:
Child care providers were “essential” long before the pandemic, and the past year has highlighted the lengths to which they are willing to go to keep their doors open to serve the children of other essential workers.
Help celebrate and thank child care providers across the nation! Here are three easy ways to celebrate Provider Appreciation Day® on Friday, May 7:
- Join the #ThankYouChildCare Twitter chat Friday, May 7 at 1 pm. Tweet using #ThankYouChildCare.
- Explore and share content from the #ThankYouChildCare toolkit. Write a message to your provider using our printable frame activity.
- Read the ChildCare Aware blog post of celebration ideas. They’ve got ideas for parents, CCR&Rs and community members to help make their local child care provider feel special.
We look forward to celebrating with you on Friday, May 7!
