Celebrating real life Super Heroes

Last night we celebrated the 16th year of the ECE Awards Banquet.  The theme this year was Super Heroes, and we took the time to celebrate the real life Super Heroes who work with the young children in our community every day.

The ECE Committee did a fabulous job decorating for the event and making the space at the Best Western as festive as it could be!

     

       

We were thrilled to see so many guests get into the spirit and dress up and embrace the theme!

    

    

Awards were given to recognize exemplary work in the field of ECE and for years of service

    

    

A very special award this year was new, and was donated by the family of Nancy Corke, who was a dear friend of Kids Can Fly.  Nancy enjoyed a career nurturing young children and was extremely passionate about sharing the joys of nature with them. The Joy of Nature award was been created to honour her memory and to encourage us to follow her example.  Congratulations to Montessori Children’s Academy for being the recipients.

    

Our night was completed with a fabulous guest speaker and amazing door prizes.  Thank you to Shaelyn Osborn from Whole Body Health for speaking to us on living your passions and following your dreams and thank you to all of the generous sponsors and community businesses who donated prizes!

    

What a wonderful night celebrating the ECE community!  See you next year!
