Day after day and year after year, early childhood educators bring a special type of care and commitment to our under-fives’ lives. They sprinkle fun into every day, and help our children learn, grow and thrive by providing enriching experiences and genuine connections. 

Educators also support parents through thick and thin, and this year, they’ve met the great challenges of COVID-19 and continued to provide safe and essential child care when we’ve needed it most.

With all this in mind, we’re glad of the opportunity to give a little back.

Early Childhood Educators’ Day is being celebrated today, and there are lots of ways to applaud your educator now, or whenever you next see them.

To show your gratitude, you and your child could:

  1. Make a thank you card or artwork for your educator;
  2. Write a short story or poem, detailing all the things your child loves about their care-giver;
  3. Hand over a homemade present, like a pasta necklace or painted pot for a plant;
  4. Pick a bunch of flowers from the garden or florist, make a paper bouquet or put together a daisy chain for your educator;
  5. Sign a giant thank you card with other families at your service (being careful about health and hygiene);
  6. Make some sweet treats or savoury snacks for a morning tea;
  7. Print out shapes for your child to add to an appreciation wall or thank you tree at your service;
  8. See what’s happening on the Early Childhood Educators’ Day Facebook page (there are prizes to win); and
  9. Last, but definitely not least, say “thank you” to your educator at drop-off or pick-up.

If you’re searching for more inspiration, then wax-resist thank you cards, pop-up unicorns and chocolate-dipped strawberries are all gorgeous ways to share the love, but a simple “thanks” will mean a lot, too.

This year, and every year, we’re so grateful for the efforts of our educators, and we wish you all a very happy Early Childhood Educators’ Day.
