(Berkeley, CA) August 10, 2017

Habitot Children's Museum is bringing in the new school year by congratulating the Bay Area’s outstanding Early Childhood Educators with the 9th Annual Bay Area “Preschool Teachers Make a Difference” Awards.  This year, sixty-eight nominations were received for preschool teachers throughout the nine Bay Area counties. The largest number of nominations came from teachers in Oakland, Berkeley, Lafayette, San Rafael, Danville, and Walnut Creek.

To see the full list of nominated teachers, and to RSVP to the Awards Ceremony event please visit:

All nominated teachers receive a prize certificate and ten winning teacher finalists receive classroom supplies from Discount School Supplies, a free class field trip to Habitot Children’s Museum, an Association of Children’s Museum’s membership, a Folkmanis puppet for storytelling, media recognition and more valuable resources.

A past award winner at last year’s ceremony shared, “Preschool teachers are rarely, if ever, recognized outside of our schools in this field. It means so much that Habitot not only created an award, but also plans a wonderful ceremony for us.”
