Two Scoops of Teacher Appreciation Giveaway.

Your donation now through May 14 will support early educators’ compassionate, expert work with children from birth to five. And you’ll be entered to win the great prize packages listed below. Winners will be announced on May 15.

Early educators are essential for families to return to work and make ends meet. Employers need accessible, affordable child care to be able to hire and retain staff. Unfortunately, early educators are too often under-appreciated. In Buncombe County their average pay is well below living wage. Educators need to be paid like the professionals and given them benefits to make early childhood development a more rewarding career. We’re working to do that in Buncombe County – through wage supplements, educator trainings, and the new Early Educator Spotlight Awards. Read about our first Spotlight Award winner, Ella Reid.
