The 2014 Designers' Showhouse is OPEN!!! The Showhouse will be open daily through May 11, 2014. This year's amazing home has been offered for the transformation by the generous homeowners, Duane and Beth Fager.

National Provider Appreciation Day... Child care providers spend their time teaching, nurturing and supporting children on a daily basis while parents are working. Knowing that children are well taken care of while the parent is away allows peace of mind. National Provider Appreciation Day is recognized annually on the Friday prior to Mother’s Day (May 9, 2014).

To celebrate this special day, we invite parents to enter their child care provider into a drawing for an “All-in-One Kitchen Island” play kitchen by sending us a letter or email saying why their child care provider is so fantastic! All entries must include their child care provider’s name, the town they are located in, and what they appreciate about their teacher/provider. All entries must be received by May 8, 2014, in order to qualify for the drawing. Please send email entries to info@east.ks.childcareaware.org or mail to Child Care Aware® of Eastern Kansas, Attn. Laurie Pigg, 1100 SW Wanamaker Road, Suite 101, Topeka, Kansas 66604.
