In appreciation of the important contributions our Child Care Workers and DECEs provide to our students and to our schools throughout the year, the Hamilton-Wentworth Catholic District School Board is proud to recognize Thursday, October 21, 2021, as Child Care Worker & Designated Early Childhood Educators Appreciation Day.
Thank you to our Early Childhood Educators Ms. Babic, Mrs. Bier, and Mrs. Kellner for their exceptional work with our students. We are very blessed to have you at St. Joachim School.
A Prayer for Child Care Workers & Early Childhood Educators
Lord Jesus Christ,
you welcomed little children,
took them in your arms, and blessed them,
look graciously on our Child Care Workers and Early Childhood Educators.
You have called them to serve you
by keeping alive your love for children,
by making you present to the little ones in our midst
so that they feel welcomed, safe, loved, and blessed.
Bless them, O Lord, as you blessed the little children.
Strengthen them with the power of your Holy Spirit,
fill their hearts with your heavenly Father’s love,
keep them in your tender care
as they watch over and educate
the little children in their care.
