Review for Terri Lynne Lokoff Child Care Foundation, King Of Prussa, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Each Spring, Early Childhood Educators who have applied and won a Terri Lynne Lokoff National Child Care Teacher Award come to Philadelphia to celebrate their achievement and accept their awards. The teachers are honored for the valuable work they do and the creative project they have proposed for their early childhood classroom/ or family childcare program.

As an early childhood educator and advocate for over 30 years, it is an honor for me to have volunteered for the Terri Lynne Lokoff National Child Care Teacher Award Event for over 13 years. It is always a joy to meet and share time with the winners during the 2-day event.

In Philadelphia, being honored as professional, creative Early Childhood Educators who play a critical role in providing high quality early care and education to our nation’s young children, the teachers feel appreciated as important members of our society. Often, they do not feel valued - as they usually receive little respect and work for lower compensation than elementary school teachers. Here, the Terri Lynne Lokoff National Child Care Teacher Award event is a 2-day opportunity for them to receive an award, be honored, treated royally and feel extremely valued!

As a volunteer for this special event, the rewards I see are - the joy and happiness that is expressed, the camaraderie and friendships that develop, the increased pride in their profession, and the affirmation that Early Childhood Educators are valued in our society for the important work they do. Every year I am so grateful and proud of the Terri Lynne Lokoff Child Care Foundation and their dedication to this event!

Review for Terri Lynne Lokoff Child Care Foundation, King Of Prussa, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a 30 year early childhood educator and advocate, it is an honor for me to have volunteered for the Terri Lynne Lokoff/Children's TYLENOL National Child Care Teacher Award Event for over 10 years. In my volunteer role, I am part of the Selection Committee, as well as the celebratory events when the winners come to Philadelphia to receive their award.

Professional, creative Early Childhood Educators play a critical role in providing high quality early care and education. Their value is immeasurable! Yet, in our society, they are often not appreciated and usually work for lower compensation than elementary school teachers. The Terri Lynne Lokoff/Children's TYLENOL National Child Care Teacher Award event is a 2-day opportunity for them to be honored and treated royally!

For me, as a volunteer for this event, the rewards I see -- the joy and happiness each teacher experiences as they are honored and rewarded for their work, the camaraderie and friendships that develop with other professionals, the increased pride in their profession, and the affirmation that Early Childhood Educators are valued in our society for the important work they do -- always makes me feel so grateful and proud of the Terri Lynne Lokoff Child Care Foundation!
