NATIONAL PROVIDER APPRECIATION DAY – Friday before Mother’s Day

National Provider Appreciation Day - Friday Before Mother’s Day

NATIONAL PROVIDER APPRECIATION DAY

National Provider Day also known as National Child Care Provider Day is annually celebrated on the Friday before Mother’s Day.  It is a special day, set aside, to recognize child care providers, teachers and other educators of young children everywhere.

Child care providers deserve a big “THANK YOU” for their dedication, commitment and compassion.

Less than one-third of the children in America have a full-time stay-at-home parent.  The child care provider is a partner in raising one’s children. Parents carefully choose their child care provider.  It may be a private home daycare, a daycare center, an in-home provider, or a live-in nanny.  They put their trust in them as they share the child rearing responsibilities with them.

This would be a good day to pop some popcorn, get the family together and watch “Mary Poppins”.

NATIONAL PROVIDER APPRECIATION DAY HISTORY

National Provider Appreciation Day, an “unofficial” National holiday was started in 1996 by a group of volunteers in New Jersey.  This group saw the need to recognize the tireless efforts of providers who care for children of working parents.  Each year since, momentum and support has grown and recognition currently includes individual and government organizations throughout the United States. A proclamation is signed, each year, by many of the State Governors.
