It's That Time Again!!
Nominate an exemplary early childhood teacher for our
2019 #TeachersMatter award
Every year, Child Care Counts recognizes one outstanding early childhood teacher in the greater Washington DC area, based on submissions from parents. Teachers play a substantial role in encouraging, nurturing and guiding our youngest children and we believe their work should not go unrewarded.
A group of independent judges selects the one entry that they feel embodies the characteristics of a great early childhood teacher: patience, community building skills, creativity, kindness, flexibility, dedication and the ability to focus on the best qualities in children. The selected teacher/provider wins a $250 visa gift card to treat themselves and a $250 Kaplan gift card to purchase supplies for their class.
Provider must be state licensed and located in MD, DC or VA to be eligible. Deadline for submissions is Friday, October 11th. Winner will be announced October 18, 2019.
2018 Award Winner: Gale Quispe at Happy Tots in Hyattsville, MD
2017 Award Winner: Azin Tajdar at Kids and Tots in Potomac, MD
