Arts for Kids: Child Care Parent Appreciation Story

Congratulations to the group child care program Arts for Kids in North Fond Du Lac, WI for winning our parent story drawing. Both the family who submitted the story and the program will receive 2 sets of I Spy board books, and have their story featured below, to promote quality in early education. Parent stories we received that did not win our drawing will still be used to honor programs across Wisconsin succeeding in quality through YoungStar and to promote quality early care and education in Wisconsin.

A HUGE thanks to Arts for Kids for the quality early education program they provide, and to the parents who took the time to express their gratitude: (Please click the image to enlarge).
