The Provider of the Year Award is presented annually at the CCPC Professional Development Event & Conference.

Being selected as a Provider of the Year is not an easy task,

but a well-deserved award.

It begins by someone nominating a deserving provider.

After all Nominees are received, they are sent a self-assessment form and notebook to be completed and returned,

usually within a 6 to 8 week period.

After notebooks are judged by three competent judges selected outside of the CCPC board. The judges will judge providers solely on the information submitted (following a rubric of CCPC Standards for quality childcare), not on their personal knowledge of the provider. 


All providers will then be sent a letter of thanks for participating and notifying them if they are a finalist.


The selected provider is then notified and will be presented with an award during the Virtual CCPC Professional Development Event and Conference in April.


Needless to say, a recipient of the Provider of the Year Award should feel greatly honored as it is a Great honor

and recognition of all the hard work they do.

Provider of the Year will receive a complimentary event registration, and one year CCPC of Kansas membership and a award that is presented annually at the CCPC Professional Development Event and Conference.
