September 24-30, 2017: Nanny Appreciation Week

WHEREAS, for decades the work of nannies has made it possible for a countless number of children to receive individualized and compassionate care, helping them to grow and mature while surrounded by dedicated individuals; and,

WHEREAS, nannies work tirelessly to abide by a professional standard of excellence in caring for children and are diligent in their adherence to the federal, state and local laws related to their profession in order to ensure the safety of the children they care for; and,

WHEREAS, these caregivers foster a learning atmosphere that is constructive to emotional growth and tailored to the specific needs of each child they care for; and,

WHEREAS, on this day we recognize the many nannies that devote their skills and resources to the betterment of a child’s intellectual and emotional faculties and the overall strength of family bonds through partnership with parents; and,

WHEREAS, this week we recognize the devotion, generosity and assistance nannies provide to the children they care for;

NOW, THEREFORE, I, Rick Snyder, governor of Michigan, do hereby proclaim September 24-30, 2017 as Nanny Appreciation Week in Michigan.
