The Early Childhood Learning and Care(ECLC)
Awards of Excellence
for Practice and Programs honour the accomplishments and dedication of exceptional early learning
and care practtioners and programs. There will be one award for each category.
- The ECLC Award of Excellence for Practice:
This honour will be awarded to a child care practitioner
(centre or program administrator or ECE) working in the Nova Scotia child care
sector who consistently demonstrates best practices in their care of young children
and an outstanding dedication to the children they care for & to the early learning
and care field.
- The ECLC Award of Excellence for Program :
This honour will be awarded to a licensed Nova Scotia early childhood
learning and care program (centre based or family child care programs)
that provides outstanding and high quality care to the children
enrolled in the program.
To celebrate our 20th anniversary, CCCNS has instituted the
Early Childhood Care and Education 20+ Service Award
to recognize child care programs which have provided child care services to
children and families for twenty or more years. Programs are presented with
a certificate at the annual conference and their stories are distributed to
conference participants and the child care sector.
The Caring At Work Awards event is a dinner and award ceremony for
members of the child care community across Nova Scotia.
Child care practitioners are nominated by their peers for
their exceptional contribution to the child care sector and
to the children of Nova Scotia. Nominees are awarded Caring
At Work pins, certificates and prizes. Child care programs
and organizations are encouraged to nominate colleagues and
members. It's a great way to show someone you appreciate all
that they do, and it's also a time for all child care
practitioners to pat themselves on the back.
