Child Care Provider Appreciation Evening
What a wonderful evening May 27th turned out to be! We held our annual Child Care Provider Appreciation Evening virtually on Zoom to over 100 early care and learning professionals.
A warm thank you to Elder Eugene Harry for the beautiful welcome and to Minister of State for Child Care, Katrina Chen, who joined us to share a few words and who is always championing for child care and early care and learning professionals! Thank you Minister Chen for your dedication to child care, not only as a member of parliament but as a parent as well. We loved the surprise visit from your son at the end!
Our special guest speaker for the evening was the amazing Monique Gray Smith. Monique, we cannot thank you enough for your love and kindness to all early care and learning professionals and for joining us on this special evening. We left the evening feeling empowered, enlightened, and so inspired! Our hearts fill with happiness when we listen to you!
Special thank you to the businesses and individuals who contributed to the goodie bags for all 100 attendees! We truly appreciate your support!
