Early Educator Wonderful Hero Awards

Wonderscope Children’s Museum created the Early Educator Wonderful Hero Awards in 2014 to recognize the contributions of early childhood educators in the metropolitan Kansas City community and to highlight the importance of high quality early childhood education experiences. Teachers play a critical role in a child’s social, educational and emotional development by nurturing a child’s confidence, inspiring their imagination and creativity, and advocating for the well-being of their children and families.

The Wonderscope Early Educator Wonderful Hero Award is given to outstanding early childhood educators to recognize and thank them for making a difference in young children’s lives.
