With Gratitude, We Honor Your Teaching

May 10, 2019

May 10 was Provider Appreciation Day and this year, thread encouraged you, Alaska’s early childhood educators, to practice
daily wellness and self-care. Every day you support our young children in their healthy development and for that we say “Thank You.”

Your self-care is critical for the work that you do, because it:

  • Reduces stress during challenging situations, allowing you to focus on positive learning and development
  • Encourages creative expression and clear-mindedness
  • Builds resiliency for you to do the work you love

To help you begin, or continue, your wellness journey, thread provided you with a yoga mat! We hope that it will provide you with a special
space to take care, stretch, rest, or find your inner peace.

Yoga mats were issued to you via thread trainings and workshops,
as well as regular program visits statewide.

We hope these gifts cultivated an awareness of self-care and mindfulness.

Thank you again for your passion and dedication to our young children!
