As part of Habitot Children's Museum's mission to increase learning through play to help develop curious, creative and confident young kids, the museum hosts and organizes the 9th Annual Bay Area Preschool Teacher Awards for the Early Childhood community. Preschool teachers nurture curiosity in young children, build their social and emotional skills, inspire their imaginations, and open the doors to lifelong learning. The importance of a quality preschool experience can not be underestimated. This year, sixty-eight nominations were received for forty-three preschool teachers working in any of the nine Bay Are counties between May 1st to July 20th. All nominees receive a special prize certificate, and ten finalists receive a grand prize consisting of teaching supplies from Discount School Supply, Folkmanis puppets, class field trips to Habitot Children's Museum, parenting resources, media recognition, and a award for display at a public ceremony on September 25th, 2017. To help welcome in the new school year, Habitot invites parents, teachers and advocates for early childhood education to join us in recognizing the enormous contributions of our preschool teachers and educators in the Bay Area. Please join us in congratulating these outstanding men and women to let them know how important they are to the growth and development of young children.
