Provider Appreciation Day - May 12
The Cabarrus County Board of Commissioners has proclaimed May 12, 2023 as Provider Appreciation Day.
Child care provides a safe, nurturing place for the enrichment and development of millions of children nationwide, and is a vital force in our local economy. In Cabarrus County alone, there are 968 child care providers actively caring for around 3,777 children.
Child care programs, which are mostly small businesses, run and staffed predominantly by women, are still recovering from health and financial hardships stemming from the pandemic while still continuing to meet the needs of our local families. The pandemic illuminated how indispensable child care providers are for the well-being and economic security of Cabarrus County’s young children, families and communities.
The Cabarrus County Partnership for Children provides support to our local child care providers through training, support and by connecting them with the resources they need to ensure every child in their care is receiving high-quality care.
Thank you to our child care providers for making sure our children are safe and cared for.
