What are we working on?

Provider Recognition Evening. Thursday Evening before Mother's DayTop of Page

Each spring the Tehama County Local Child Care Planning Council, Tehama County Department of Education, and Child Care Referral and Education host an event designed to applaud the efforts of child care providers in their endeavor to extend quality care to the families of Tehama County.  Each year, approximately 100 individuals are recognized for the challenging role they face every day as they strive to provide quality child care to the families they serve.  We believe that these providers make a huge difference not only in the lives of the children and families of Tehama County, but to our community as a whole.  Funding for this event is provided by First 5 Tehama.

  • Encouraging staff to continue working in the ECE field
  • Establishing a strong network of early childhood professionals
  • Increasing interest in entering the ECE field
