Child Care Aware of Virginia
is a community-based network of early care and education specialists whose purpose is to deliver services to families, child care professionals and communities to increase the accessibility, availability, and quality of child care in Virginia.
Thanks for the great feedback so far. We still want to hear from the providers and teachers in the field ... what are your thoughts? ...
ATTN: Providers! We need your input!
Each year, we petition the Governor's office for a proclamation to honor Early Childhood Professionals' Day - otherwise known nationally as Provider Appreciation Day.
This day is celebrated each spring during Teacher Appreciation Week, on the Friday before Mother's Day (this year, our special day falls on Friday, May 11).
We've gotten some suggestions on re-naming the day to "Early Childhood Teacher Appreciation Day" to emphasize the recognition of your role as teachers.
Which name do YOU feel best reflects and honors your profession as child care / early childhood educators?
