Celebrating Our Teachers

Five Teachers Recognized As Top Educators With 2017 Legacy Award

January 3, 2018

At KinderCare Education, we believe that great teachers deserve the highest accolades for the passion, talent and dedication they bring to the classroom every day. That's why, 10 years ago, we created the KinderCare Education Legacy Awards. This award reflects our belief that great teachers truly do leave a legacy for the children they care for. Each year, our very best early childhood and school-age educators are named KinderCare Education Legacy Award Winners and receive a cash prize of $10,000 and an all-expense paid trip to our National Support Center in Portland, Oregon. 

Each of our Legacy Award Winners are not only masterful teachers, but also have a passion that instills a sense of confidence in the children in their classroom, inspiring them to become learners for life. These teachers have an extraordinary ability to connect and build meaningful relationships with children, families and the communities they are a part of. They are the keys to our KCE legacy.
