Early care and education (ECE) providers are sources of nurturing care that enable children to feel safe and protected when away from their parents. By caring for children, ECE providers help support parents who are working to provide for their family. In their role as nurturers, ECE providers often feel like part of the child’s extended family. As a trusted professional, ECE providers can provide tips on positive parenting and family engagement. Parents and ECE providers can work together to support and improve the learning, development, and health of children.
