Shhh, It's a Surprise!

Join Us in Thanking Child Care Providers...

Each year, we celebrate Provider Appreciation Day and take a moment to honor the dedication, hard work, and love that child care professionals provide to our children. These incredible individuals do more than care for our youngest; they lay the foundation for a lifetime of learning and growth. Yet, their efforts often go unnoticed. This Provider Appreciation Day, join Action for Children in changing that narrative.

Show Your Gratitude

We’re on a mission to create and distribute over 1,200 personalized, hand-decorated thank-you cards to child care providers across central Ohio to show our gratitude for all they do. We’ll be sending the hand written cards you make to every licensed child care provider in Franklin, Licking, Delaware, Union, Pickaway, Fairfield, and Madison Counties for Provider Appreciation Day on May 10th, 2024!

How You Can Get Involved

  • Donate

    Every dollar counts. A donation as little as $5 covers the cost of creating and sending one special card. Your contribution helps us ensure that every child care professional in our service area receives this token of appreciation.

    Cover the cost of a card (or four!)
  • Volunteer

    Put your creativity to good use by joining our card-making event on Friday, May 3rd. Whether you’re an artist or someone who simply wants to say “thank you,” your hands-on participation will make this gesture even more meaningful. We’ve partnered with Besa to make the volunteer experience seamless and enjoyable for everyone.
