Applications Extended For The 2023 Terri Lynne Lokoff Teacher Awards


Date: 2023-04-29


In 1994, Kay and Fred Lokoff launched the Terri Lynne Lokoff Child Care Teacher Awards to honor their daughter Terri who was a devoted childcare teacher. The Awards are designed to recognize and celebrate the achievements of outstanding early care and education teachers and bring attention to the critical role these teachers play in the lives of young children.


Up to 50 awards are presented each year, and each award recipient receives a cash prize, a paid trip to historic Philadelphia to participate in the Terri Lynne Lokoff Teacher Awards Celebration, ongoing opportunities to connect with peers, exchange ideas, as well as ongoing professional learning and program enrichment opportunities.

Applications for the upcoming 2023 Awards Celebration open on August 15th, and don’t forget to save the date for our 2023 Awards Celebration to be held on the weekend of April 29th, 2022.
