Honor an Educator Information

Honor an Early Childhood Educator 


The Honor an Early Childhood Educator program was created in 2014 with two primary goals – to recognize early childhood educators who have made a difference in the lives of young children and families, and to provide NAEYC/CAAEYC membership scholarships for current undergraduate or graduate students majoring in early childhood education/development. Honorees are sent a congratulatory letter from the California Association for the Education of Young Children, as well as being presented a certificate of appreciation of their outstanding contribution to excellence in the early childhood field. Honorees are presented the certificate at the Honor an ECE Educator reception held during the CAAEYC Annual Conference and Expo.

Congratulations to the honorees throughout the years and thanks to nominators for their generous support of CAAEYC.
