"With all the national finalists being of such high quality the decision in naming our national winners was very difficult, however both Kids at Home Family Day Care and Debbie are very deserving winners," said FDCA Chief Executive Officer, Andrew Paterson.

Along with the national titles, both winners will receive a professional development and programing grant courtesy of FDCA as well as tickets to the FDCA 2018 National Conference.
