The Friday Before Mother’s Day is Childcare Provider Appreciation Day
“Thank you” to child care providers and early child care educators! We want to share these words from parents and community leaders who are grateful for the dedication to children and families, and recognize the importance of their work for children in northeast Wisconsin.
We are distributing stickers for parents and children to wear on Childcare Provider Appreciation Day. We also want to share stories of great providers in our community.
Parents and children can nominate their favorite childcare providers in two ways!.
Parents can nominate their favorite childcare provider* by filling out the nomination form. The Provider and their nominator will be entered to win a $100 gift certificate for a restaurant or spa day in a drawing on May 12.
