To all the child care providers, preschool teachers, early learning professionals, and family, friends and neighbors who care for our babies, toddlers and preschoolers, we say: Thank you. By caring for our children, you’ve been caring for us all.
LET’S SHOW ARIZONA’S EARLY CHILDHOOD CAREGIVERS HOW MUCH WE CARE
Now more than ever, we want every early childhood caregiver in Arizona to know that they are appreciated. We invite you to share the care for your early care and education providers and the family, friends and neighbors who care for and teach our kids, igniting their imaginations and nurturing their healthy development and learning, every single day. We have put together a variety of ways that you can help us get this message out:
1. DOWNLOAD OUR #ShareTheCareAZ SIGN
Whether you display it in your front window or take a picture of it and share on social media, the #ShareTheCareAZ sign is the perfect way to personalize a message for your (and your child’s) favorite provider. We’ve made it easy to print and customize with notes of appreciation that they are sure to love. We’d like to encourage everyone to post pictures and video on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter — just be sure to use #ShareTheCareAZ and tag First Things First when posting.
2. USE THE HASHTAG, #ShareTheCareAZ
When you do share some love for Arizona caregivers, make sure to use the hashtag and tag First Things First so we can see and celebrate the outpouring of support.
3. DISPLAY YOUR #ShareTheCareAZ FACEBOOK FRAME
We’ve created a Facebook frame you can use to show your appreciation for caregivers all over Arizona. Updating your profile with our Facebook frame is easy:
- Go to www.facebook.com/profilepicframes.
- Click your profile picture in the bottom left and select your Page.
- Search for a frame by entering ‘SharetheCareAZ’ or ‘First Things First’
- Choose the Share the Care frame from the results.
- Click Use as Profile Picture.
4. USE THE #ShareTheCareAZ GIPHYS WHEN POSTING ON INSTAGRAM
We’ve created two #ShareTheCareAZ GIPHYS to use when posting stories on Instagram (perhaps of your child and the poster template above). Just search giphys for ‘Share the Care AZ’ or ‘First Things First’.
5. ADD THE #ShareTheCareAZ GRAPHIC TO YOUR CONTENT
We’ve assembled a few #ShareTheCareAZ graphics to make it easy to display on your website or to create your own artwork in support of caregivers across Arizona. Just download the files below and remember to link to this page.
