ACCOLADE: 2012 TERRi LYNNE LOKOFF NATIONAL CHILD CARE TEACHER AWARD

"Don't Forget Me, Inclusion at Three"s  is a program designed by Miss Katie Knight. This program helps ensure that all children, regardless of ability level, are successful in her Preschool classroom. This project helps to draw awareness and acceptance of those with differing abilities. Learning about inclusion at an early age will help children to build better their understanding and acceptance of life’s many differences.  It is Katie's goal to ensure that all children leave my classroom as a caring community of learners with love for all people! We are thrilled that Katie has been presented with this honor from such an inspiring organization.
