About the Contest:

Last year Thirteen/WNET launched an event to nominate Outstanding Child Care Providers in the Thirteen/WNET viewing area. From October 15th until January 15th we received many nominations for extraordinary childcare providers. From the large group of nominations we were able to select these Outstanding Child Care Providers to nominate as Thirteen/WNET recognized Child Care Providers of New York. All finalists were then sent on to A Place of Our Own and one truly outstanding provider was selected to be featured on the program.
