Applications open for the 2023 Early Childhood Education Scholarship

Aug 11, 2023 | News & Announcements

The Collingwood Neighbourhood House (CNH) Board of Directors is proud to provide a scholarship of $750.00 in honour of a long-term staff Nina Vacca.

Nina passed away in 2021. Nina arrived to Canada as a refugee and was a lifelong learner; she pursued her Early Childhood Education Certificate later in life.

Nina worked at CNH as a manager of the LINC Childcare Program; she was also a childcare worker in the Families Branching Out Program and Family Place. She always showed a lot of love and care in the work she did with children. 

Her contributions and work did not stop with her caring for children at CNH: she volunteered in her community every year to organize events for the Chilean community. 

At CNH we want to celebrate Nina’s legacy by offering this scholarship to refugee and immigrant women.
