Celebrating Child Care Worker and Early Childhood Educator Appreciation Day
Thunder Bay, October 18, 2022 – Tuesday, October 18, 2022 is Child Care Worker and Early Childhood Educator Appreciation Day. The District of Thunder Bay Social Services Administration Board (TBDSSAB) encourages the community to show their support of the child care profession and the educators that support their families.
“On behalf of the Board, I extend my deepest gratitude to child care workers and early learning heroes across the District for all you do to enrich the lives of children. Early childhood education is vital to the development of young minds and these professionals deserve our admiration and respect. Thank you for helping our children to explore and engage with the world around them.” – Lucy Kloosterhuis, Board Chair, TBDSSAB
“Child care and early years programs are critical to the success of our communities, and it’s important that we acknowledge that and show our appreciation. Being a child care professional is not easy—especially with the ups and downs faced in the last couple of years. It takes a big heart and dedication to support the development of children in the early years. Child care professionals should know that their commitment to families and children is appreciated.” – Bill Bradica, CAO, TBDSSAB
In recognition of Child Care Worker and Early Childhood Educator Appreciation Day, TBDSSAB would like to thank all the child care and early years professionals across The District of Thunder Bay for their commitment to serving families and children. Thank you for fostering a sense of wellbeing, curiosity, and belonging in our children, and for giving them the tools to learn from the world around them.
If you know someone who works within the child care profession or is an educator to your child(ren), please take the time to say a special thank you. Encourage children to decide how they’d like to show their appreciation.
