There are an estimated 2 million child care and early education providers across the nation who care for almost 12 million children under the age of 5. Today, the Friday before Mother’s Day, is the special opportunity to recognize and honor all of those child care providers, but especially the ones right here at home who care for Humboldt County’s almost 9,000 children age 5 and under. You do extraordinary work in nurturing, teaching and caring for our children. You keep businesses open and families able to work and thrive. Our nation and our county could not function without you. Thank you!
