KLRU Salutes Central Texas Child Care Providers

KLRU Salutes Central Texas Child Care Providers

On Saturday, March 27, 2010, six child care providers, their friends and family gathered in the Austin City Limits Studio to be celebrated as outstanding caregivers in Central Texas. Melissa Huber, 2008 Central Texas Child Care Provider of the Year, presented a short training on conflict resolution using A Place of Our Own/Los Niños en su Casa parenting series.  Kierstan Schwab, Executive Director, Texas Public Broadcasting Association, discussed the role TPBA has had in early child care.  After a catered lunch, the providers viewed a short KLRU-produced video on the 2010 Central Texas Child Care Provider of the Year, Brandi & David Hitchcock of Austin TX.  To wrap up the celebration, Bill Stotesbery, KLRU’s CEO presented each caregiver with a certificate and a bag of gifts as our way of saying “Thank you!”

Congratulations to the following caregivers: Christine Baird, from Kyle, TX; Tony Bingham, from Austin, TX; Martha Carrillo, from San Marcos, TX; Margaret Coose, from Austin, TX; and Linda Woodard, from Pflugerville, TX for being selected as an outstanding caregiver in Central Texas!
