May 18 is a special day in BC set aside to recognize child care providers, teachers, school-age program staff, child care center directors and staff, and all those who work with children and are responsible for their education and care. One way to show your support, recognize their hard work and dedication, and acknowledge their contributions to quality care is to nominate them for a Child Care Recognition Award.
Our Child Care Recognition Awards aim to honour exceptional role models working in the Aboriginal early childhood education field throughout BC. These inspiring individuals are the champions of our communities. Traditional First Nations and/or Métis language, culture, and practice are celebrated through their passion, dedication, and hard work.
Each year, we ask child care professionals to nominate colleagues who are deserving of this special recognition. Nominations are now open. Nominate someone today! Show your colleagues how much they inspire you. Download the form now! The deadline is June 30, 2017.
Winners will be announced publicly on October 28, 2017 at our Annual Provincial Training Conference Child Care Award Ceremony. Last year’s winners were: Jackie Casey, Jennifer Cross, Roseanne George, Vanessa Cardinal, and Vanessa Hickman.
