"I struggled for a long time. My space was small and it was difficult to keep up with my bills. But I kept going, determined to succeed and now I am proud to own and operate two successful childcare programs.All the hardship was worth it to be lucky enough to do what I love every day.”

The provider award is the highest honor present by the UFT to deserving early childcare educators. We are so proud, but not surprised, as both of these providers deserve the recognition.
