Recognize child-care providers

Child-care providers have the most important jobs in the world, helping to develop children into sensitive, well-adjusted young people. Because of their attention and nurturing, children continue to grow emotionally and intellectually. Most child-care providers take their responsibility seriously. Garfield County has an enthusiastic and dedicated child-care workforce. The sixth annual Provider Appreciation Brunch, from noon to 2 p.m. April 23 at the Hotel Colorado, will honor local child-care providers who have gone above and beyond in caring for children. If you feel your provider is exceptional, please take the time to nominate him or her for this award. All child-care providers who are nominated will be honored and recognized at the brunch and given a certificate of appreciation. This is a great opportunity to let your child’s provider know how much you appreciate the care that is given to your precious children. The brunch is offered by invitation only. Invitations are sent to all licensed facilities in Garfield County, and it is free to licensed caregivers and one guest.
