::: winners are grinners
Big news!! Because of all our wonderful followers who have a passion for our blog and took the time to vote for us in the “Edublog Awards“, we have actually won our category – “Best Group Blog”.
We are soooo excited! When we looked at our competition we didn’t think we would have a chance, but due to the wonderful support we have received from so many of you, we came out in front.
What can we say except thank you so much!!! Never did we think when we started on our blogging journey 15 months ago that we would be reaching not only a Melbourne audience, or Victorian or even Australian, but a world wide community of bloggers who are so totally supportive and encouraging of each other.
Also huge congratulations to our friend Teacher Tom Hobson who won his category of “Best Teacher Blog”, a very well deserved win for a passionate teacher of early childhood. Deborah Stewart of “Teach Preschool” was another deserving winner in the “Best Individual Twitter” category.
This is an award for early childhood, and it just goes to show … it really does take a village to raise a child, or in this case a whole blogging community to educate one!
Today “irresistible ideas for play based learning” may be holding the trophy but without the support of wonderful people like Jenny, who nominated us and Juliet, who was a great advocate in the push to get an early childhood blog across the finish line, and every single person who visits and voted for our blog we wouldn’t have made it this far. You often hear acceptance speeches at award ceremonies where people thank multiples of others for getting them across the line … well today we get it … we totally get it!
This award really is for everyone who shares our philosophy and belief in early childhood education, and to each and every one of you we say a sincere THANK YOU!
