The April 26th event will also recognize two early childhood educators with the Regional Preschool and Kindergarten Teacher of the Year Awards. Nominations are being sought from the community for teachers who honor early childhood learning through innovative incorporation of play and creativity, passion for the importance of preschool/Kindergarten education and demonstrated dedication to young children.

The Children’s Museum of Richmond took over management of Central Virginia’s Children’s Book Bank last year. The book bank started as a collaborative effort back in August of 2000 when the Greater Richmond Chamber and United Way pooled their resources to collect and distribute books.
