Thank you. Two small words. Words that can only begin to express our appreciation for the work you do as a family child care provider. Today, on National Provider Appreciation Day, we want to take this moment to express what we feel every day, a deep appreciation and gratitude for the work you do.

You are helping our children build the foundations of their lives. You are helping parents go to work worry free, knowing their children are in your care. You are contributing to your community as a small business owner. And you do it all, usually with very long hours and significant personal sacrifice.

You give so much of yourselves so that others may thrive and we are honored to work on your behalf. While you may not hear it often enough, please know that we are among the millions of parents and supporters who appreciate you and the work you do. And on this, your day, we say thank you.
