13 Ways You Can Appreciate Your Child Care Provider

Provider Appreciation Day is Right Around the Corner

One of the most important jobs out there is a child care provider. Yet, many child care providers make a low hourly salary and some don’t even get benefits. Although Child Care Provider Appreciation Day is Friday, May 11th this year, we encourage you to regularly show your gratefulness throughout the year. We spoke to our staff to gather a few ideas on ways that you can show that you care about the person who helps nurture and take care of your little ones during the week.
