S.P.I.C.E. Group

Supporting Providers In Childcare Environments
Add a little SPICE to your day!

What is SPICE? SPICE is a support group for child care providers powered by Yahoo Groups

~:~ Our Goal ~:~

To provide a positive and safe environment of support for child care providers. Providing child care is a very stressful job. We are business owners, daily programmers, supply shoppers, janitors, cooks, entertainers, referee’s, cab drivers, nurses, story tellers…. the list goes on. We are professional child care providers! We spend our days caring for little ones, making their world a better place, opening & sharing our homes with many different families. We spend our evenings caring for our families and somehow caring for ourselves is last on the list. Taking time to care for ourselves and reduce stress is very important to our ability to care for others. It is our goal that this list will be one way to care for the provider through sharing idea’s & advice in all aspects of our careers. A safe place to vent, problem solve and evaluate. Build lasting friendships. Providers Helping Providers SPICE Things Up!!

You must work with children as a child care provider, preschool teacher, or homeschool parent to become a member of SPICE
