2022 Provider of the Year

Due to the ongoing struggles with the current Covid issues the CCPC board has decided it is in the best interest to this years nominees to postpone the 2022 Provider of the Year. 

We want all nominees to have the abiltiy to complete the POY notebook without the ongoing current stresses of Covid. 

All nominees will be eligible for next years Provider of the Year. 

2020 Annual Conference

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.
