Child Care Provider Day

Date When Celebrated: Always the Friday before Mother's Day

Child Care Provider Day is today. It is also referred to as Daycare Provider Day. Child Care provider is more inclusive, so most prefer to call it that. Either way you call it, this day gives recognition and appreciation to the millions of people involved with providing care to children of working families. Child care providers have the health and safety of our children in their hands. They spend many hours with your child, teaching them educational, social, and behavioral skills. In some cases, child care providers spend more waking time with your child than you do!

Use today to let your child care provider know how much they are appreciated. Give them a card, and a big thank you. Small gifts are acceptable, but not a requirement.

If you are a child care provider, we thank you for all that you do for our children.

Today's Quote: " It's not what you look at that matters. It's what you see." - - Henry David Thoreau

History and Origin of Child Care Provider Day:

Child Care Provider Day was created in 1996, by a group of volunteers in New Jersey. They recognized the need to show appreciation to child care and daycare providers for the important role they play in our children's lives.
