Announcing the 2022 Early Childhood Educator of the Year

October 11, 2022 VTAEYCConference

VTAEYC is delighted to announce Ami English of Coventry is the winner of the eighth annual Early Childhood Educator of the Year Award. The prestigious annual award honors exceptional early childhood educators and spotlights the importance of high-quality early childhood education for Vermont’s children, families, and communities.

Ami is being recognized for her work as Teacher/Director of Coventry Village School Preschool, where she emphasized imaginative outdoor play. Ami recently became an Early Childhood Coach for the North Country Supervisory Union, supporting other early childhood educators in her district.

“Ami English understands that building caring and supportive relationships – with children, with families, with colleagues – is key to quality early childhood education,” said VTAEYC Executive Director Janet McLaughlin. “But what really stands out is her passion for play-based learning, and her ability to create inviting opportunities for children to lead themselves in discovery. Ami demonstrates this developmentally-appropriate practice at the highest level.”

Ami English, 2022 Early Childhood Educator of the Year

Ami’s teaching philosophy is that young children need “loose parts” to learn about their world through play: items like scarves and sticks that can be adapted for different uses based on a child’s imagination. “I want to cultivate imagination and wonder,” she said: at Coventry Village School, she created a preschool playground with wood and stones for building, art and music stations, a dramatic play area and a stage for dancing and acting out stories. “To the passersby our playground looks empty, but once set up each day, it’s alive with children doing their best and most important work: playing!” she affirmed.

In her new role as a district-wide coach, Ami helps fellow early childhood educators set goals and implement best teaching practices, while sharing her love of open-ended exploration and of the outdoors. Ami encourages fellow early childhood educators to creatively incorporate nature in their curricula: in rural areas, children can examine natural objects through outdoor exploration; children in city settings can explore natural materials educators bring into their playgrounds or classrooms. Ami said, “I have the best job in the world: I get to go from school to school and play with children!”
