ECE Program Celebrates National Appreciation Day

October 31, 2008
In partnership with the City of London, the Quality Child Care Project and our Community Partners, Fanshawe's Early Childhood Education program hosted a Mentor Appreciation Event at London Civic Gardens on October 22, 2008.

More then 100 early childhood educators were celebrated with an award ceremony honoring all those educators who participated last year in the quality initiative "Raising the Bar on Quality." Participants also enjoyed light refreshments, networking and door prizes.

Our local branch of the Association for Early Childhood Educators, Ontario, donated a free yearly membership and our fourth semester students volunteered to welcome and greet those who attended. This is our second event in the past three years and the number of participants has doubled.

This event is our opportunity to thank our community child care mentors because without them we could not be successful in training our future early childhood educators!
