Review for Terri Lynne Lokoff Child Care Foundation, King Of Prussa, PA, USA
I only stubbles upon the application for the child care teacher of the year award this fall! I started asking around to see if anyone knew if it was legit. Sure enough other providers that I respect steped forward and let me know not only was it legit it was one of the most amazing experiences of their life. So I applied. Then I received the application and sat it aside till just before a week before the deadline. I was worried about asking for the needed parent and colleague because I don’t like having to ask for help with things so I almost let the opportunity pass. Thankfully later that day I had a colleague reach out to me to Tasha o me and acknowledge my efforts with our state child care association. I took it as a sign and asked her to write me a letter of support she said she would be honored. I then asked every one of my parents to write me one as well knowing I only needed 2 in the cohort time frame. To my surprise all of my families wrote beautiful letters which were an honor to receive! I would have been happy with just that - knowing how they felt about me and our program. However come to find out I was selected as one of the 50 winners for this year! My daughter came along as my support and we attended all the presentations and ceremonies which were so inspiring! Being surrounded by so many passion driven women was so motivating! I made many connections with fellow providers and am excited to follow along with all of our grant projects! It gives me lots of new ideas for years to come to continue to strive for high quality! Then on top of everything else I was fortune enough to tour the historical city of Philadelphia as well! Such legacy abounds and the beautiful architecture! I was sad to leave! I can’t wait to try and apply again ! This organization is a wonderful thing to bring respect and professionalism to a such an important field! Early childhood educators are the promise of our future!
