Nominations to recognize child-care professionals in the Powell River area for a provincial award are open until Friday, May 8.
The 2020 Child Care Professionals Awards of Excellence allows residents to nominate one child-care professional in each of the six following categories: inclusion, diversity, mentorship, environmental sustainability, administration and parent community.
All child-care professionals practising in BC between April 2019 and April 2020 are eligible, including early childhood educators, assistants, administrators, infant-toddler teachers, special needs educators, supported child-care consultants, and in-home child-care operators.
Nominators are able to select one person for more than one award or choose different people for each category. It is not necessary to fill all six. Self nominations will not be accepted.
All nominees will be notified after a shortlist is complete. If their choice makes the shortlist, nominators will be contacted for an interview about the nominee.
Winners will be selected randomly from the shortened list and spotlighted in an upcoming Child Care Professionals of BC newsletter and on social media.
A nomination form is available at ccpbc.ca/award_nomination. Requirements include the name of the nominee, an email address where they can be reached, and examples of how they exceed excellence in their award category.
Nominations must be received by 5 pm on May 8.
