Kudos and Kindness: Thank you for supporting child care professionals

In honor of the Month of the Young Child, Choices for Children’s South Lake Tahoe office organized the Annual Provider Breakfast honoring our community’s childcare providers for the services they provide to families and children throughout the year.

The early care and education field came together on April 10, 2010, at the Lake Tahoe Golf Course to attend the 19th annual Child Care Professionals Appreciation Breakfast. This year’s topic, “Planting Seeds of the Future – How to Raise Emotionally Healthy Children,” was presented by Robert Brunson, program manager, county of Monterey Department of Health Children’s Behavioral Health Division. Sixty-two child care providers from both Alpine and El Dorado counties were in attendance.

Each provider received Gerald Newmark’s book, “How to Raise Emotionally Healthy Children.” The book addresses the five critical needs of children and parents: To feel respected, to feel important, to feel accepted, to feel included and to feel secure.

The conference included an eco-friendly art activity using wood-free and biodegradable cornstarch noodles. Family child care providers in attendance who participate in the Child Care Food Program were recognized for their efforts with beautiful potted plants donated by Thran’s Flowers.

Raffle prizes donated by our community made the CFC Annual Child Care Professionals Appreciation Breakfast very special. CFC would like to thank MontBleu, Harvey’s/Harrah’s, Lake Tahoe Golf Course, Sorensen’s, Ernie’s Coffee Shop, Passaretti’s Italian Restaurant, Thran’s Flowers, Blockbuster, Chevy’s Fresh Mex, Sessions, City of South Lake Tahoe Parks and Recreation and Ice Arena, Safeway, Round Table Pizza, Hot Cha Cha, Side Street Boutique, Kirkwood, Freshies, Orchid Thai Cuisine, Overland Meat & Seafood Company, Grass Roots, Sprouts, Applebee’s, Sierra at Tahoe/North Star at Tahoe and Heavenly Village Cinema for their generous donations, especially in light of the current economy.
