The 2021 Terri Lynne Lokoff Teacher Awards

The Terri Lynne Lokoff Teacher Awards have honored hundreds of outstanding child care teachers for their dedication, expertise, and commitment to providing high quality early learning experiences since 1994. First Up is excited to join this legacy of celebrating these essential members of our society by hosting the Terri Lynne Lokoff Teacher Awards for the first time in 2021.

We hope that you’ll join us to meet and celebrate with this year’s award recipients from across the United States on Saturday, May 22, at 7:30pm EDT. This year’s event will be held virtually on Zoom and requires pre-registration.

Registration is open now!

First Up is also proud to recognize Kathy Hirsh-Pasek as the 2021 Kay Lokoff Yellow Rose for Outstanding Advocacy in Early Childhood Education Awardee. Kathy is a tremendous force within the ECE community and is widely renowned as a champion for early education.
