"Hawaii's Favorite Child Care Provider" 2012 Winners
In honor of National Child Care Provider Appreciation Day on May 11th, we announced the winners of PATCH’s second annual Hawaii’s Favorite Preschool Teacher & Favorite Family Child Care Provider contest.
Maile Davis of Auntie Maile's/Piikea Kids in Haiku, Maui,
Hawaii's Favorite FCC Provider for 2012
Maile grew up in Haiku, Maui where she still lives today. She attended the same school that her children now go to - Haiku Elementary School. Maile considers herself a lifelong learner and enjoys continuing her education in as many ways as she can; whether it is through formal education, community classes or learning new things online.
Jordan Kennedy of YWCA Hilo, Hawaii Island,
Hawaii's Favorite Preschool Teacher for 2012
Jordan was born in Seattle, Washington and attended North Seattle Community College. He now lives in sunny Keaukaha with his wife. Jordan says he was drawn to this field because he never lost his ability to find joy in life, much like a child. It is this understanding of the way young learners see the world that compelled him to work in child care.
Thank you to all who voted and participated in this year's contest and thank you to all Child Care Professionals in Hawaii for your valuable work and dedication to caring for our keiki.
