Teacher Appreciation Week Ideas

Teacher Appreciation Week is the week where we get to show our appreciation to teachers by giving them gifts to make them feel special.

Happy Teacher Appreciation Week!

The Early Childhood Educators (ECE) week can be different from a place to another.

In Canada,It’s:

April 26 – May 2

As a teacher who spent many years celebrating this week. I got creative to make a weekly planner ideas  that I find interesting.

If you are a daycare provider who is reading this, You don’t have to follow all of them but at least pick some from this list.  It will make your staff feel appreciated and special

So here’s my Teacher Appreciation Week Ideas:


For Breakfast, I have two options for you:

  • Breakfast1: Coffee,Juice,Donuts,Muffins.
  • Breakfast2: Coffee,Tea,Juice,Eggs,Saussages,Toast,Pancakes,Fruits.

Paint Night: With drinks,Popcorn and candy.


For the extra lunch hour break:

  • You can either give it to them during their lunch.
  • Or, divide it through their breaks.


Potluck Day: Write down in different pieces of paper: Dessert,Meal,Salad,Appetizer,…etc. 

Then,let your staff grab one randomly so they know what to bring.



For the gift exchange: It can be a goodies bag that includes an appreciation note.

Shared thoughts: Invite parents and children to share their thoughts about every teacher.


Customed blankets: This can be a cozy,plush blanket that has the name of the teacher engraved in it with the daycare  (school) logo.

Every teacher, like to feel appreciated for all the hard work they do. Small gestures like this will mean a lot to them.

I hope my Teacher Appreciation Week ideas could inspire you with your planning for this lovely week!  

If you’re a parent, sometimes offering a simple art made by the child to the teacher could mean a lot to them. Make sure to check this link for some ideas.
