A select group of child care programs are the newest local programs to earn their Parent Aware ratings.
Parent Aware’s mission is to help families find the quality care and education their children need to succeed in school and life. These child care programs all volunteered to go above and beyond basic health and safety requirements and use best practices to support child development.
The local businesses who received ratings in Douglas County include: Alexandria Area YMCA Center East, Alexandria Area YMCA Center South, Lynette Euerle, Haley Radil, Ann Sadlemyer and Sarah Thieschafer
“These early childhood educators have gone above and beyond to provide quality care for the children and families in their programs,” said Marianne Smith, professional development advisor, for the Northwest Child Care Aware District.
