Celebrating A Successful Collaboration

The Manitoba Child Care Association (MCCA) Educaring Award was established in 2004 and recognizes the partnerships between schools and child care facilities. The award is based on the “Three C’s” of Educaring ~ Communication, Collaboration and Consistency. It is presented to a school and child care facility who have together demonstrated these three concepts.
Some of the necessary components of the award are the school and child care facility:
  • Demonstrates communication by arranging an annual review of planning and communication between facilities
  • Works collaboratively by sharing resources, ownership, information, space and equipment
  • Fosters reciprocal participation in each other’s events (eg. Board and parent council, extracurricular activities, and professional development)
  • Provides and maintains consistent delivery of programs serving children
  • Knows and respects how each other’s system works and the required responsibilities of the other program
Award recipients:
  • Are presented with a plaque at the MCCA Awards Banquet
  • Receive two complimentary tickets to the banquet (one for school and one for child care facility)
  • Have names inscribed on a plaque at MCCA
  • Will be profiled in the fall issue of Child Care Bridges and on MCCA’s website
It was an absolute honour to be awarded the 2019 Educaring Award by MCCA. We are very proud of the relationship we have with École Powerview School and the staff who make this collaboration so incredible!
I have worked in the field of Early Childhood Education for 25 years and can honestly say that it is the most rewarding work I could imagine. The families who walk through our doors, trusting us with their most precious gifts become family to us and we would not be able to do the work we do without their support as well.
We are truly blessed to be part of such an amazing community!
