Educators Take on Self-Care

June 27, 2019

On Provider Appreciation Day (May 10), thread’s statewide team delivered yoga mats to various programs to say “Thank You” to Alaska’s
early childhood educators.

This year, thread is encouraging early educators to practice daily wellness and self-care because every day they support our young children
in their healthy development. 

Self-care is critical 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

All month long, yoga mats were also issued via statewide thread trainings and workshops, as well as regular program visits.

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

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