Iowa ranks second in the country in the number of working parents with young children (79 percent) and first in the country in the number of working parents with school-aged kids (83 percent). With the changing nature of the workforce, more mothers are working outside the home than ever before and more children are in child care.
We are encouraging parents with children in child care to take this day to show their child care provider how much they appreciate them. It takes a special person to work in this field and their contribution to the quality of family life frequently goes unnoticed.
