Learn about our Legacy Award Winners.

We believe that great teachers deserve the highest accolades for the passion, talent, and dedication they bring to the classroom every day. That’s why we created the KinderCare Education Legacy Awards. Each year, seven of our very best early childhood and school-age educators are named KinderCare Education Legacy Award Winners and receive a cash prize of $10,000 and an all-expense paid trip to a national early childhood education conference.

Every single one of these educators brings a heartfelt passion and sense of purpose to their classrooms, inspiring children to become curious learners for life—and that’s what our legacy is all about.

These star teachers are proud to share their knowledge, advice, and passion with families and other educators on the KinderCare Blog for Parents.
