Siobian Minish, lead teacher in the infant room of the Child Development Lab at the McPhaul Center, received the Child Caregiver of the Year Award by the Georgia Association on Young Children.
Minish was recognized at the GAYC annual conference on Friday. GAYC is a non-profit organization that supports the education and development of young children in Georgia.
The award stipulates that the recipient be an “outstanding employee at a child care center who demonstrates exemplary work with children.”
“Siobian certainly exhibits exemplary work through her efforts in the classroom with students, parents and co-workers, her educational commitment in working toward her master’s degree and her coordinating efforts of our Parent Interest Group,” said Amy Kay, Director of the Child Development Lab.
Minish was nominated by Amanda Cook, the mother of one of her students, and chosen from a pool of contenders across the state.
