March 26, 2018

LAKE COUNTY, CALIF (March 26, 2018)–The Lake County Child Care Planning Council (LPC), administered through the Lake County Office of Education (LCOE), announced the nominees for the 2018 Early Childhood Educator Awards.

There are over 100 nominations, which includes 61 different nominees in nine (9) different categories. The winners will be announced during the Early Childhood Educator Awards dinner, May 4, 2018 at the Mt. Konocti Winery in Kelseyville.

Angela Cuellar-Marroquin, Lake County Child Care Planning Council Coordinator, explains the importance of these awards. “It’s a time that we recognize the hard work that the early educators do each and every day. Early education is the foundation of a successful academic career.”

Brock Falkenberg, Lake County Superintendents adds, “Research shows that quality ECE is associated with higher measures of early language and math development, preparing our youngest members of Lake County for kindergarten.”

Cuellar-Marroquin was thrilled with the depth of this year’s nominees. “I’m especially excited that so many Family Child Care homes were nominated. We really enjoy being able to recognize those small businesses around the lake that are providing licensed child care in their homes.”

This year’s theme for the awards dinner is “Live. Love. Travel. Education is our passport to adventure.”

There is no cost to attend for the nominees and one (1) guest each. There is no cost if you work or are studying to work in the early childhood education field. You must register by April 15, 2018. Anyone else attending may purchase a ticket for $25.
