Provider of the Year Award
The Provider of the Year Award is presented annually at the CCPC 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 during our call for POY nominations in our November e-newsletter. After all Nominees are received, they are sent a self-assessment form and notebook to be completed and returned, usually within a 6-8-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 so that they may prepare a short speech to deliver at the CCPC Conference, when the award is presented. The recipient is also welcome to invite the family members to be a part of their celebration.
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, one night hotel stay and one year CCPC of Kansas membership.
