Applications Invited for Terri Lynne Lokoff/Children’s Tylenol National Child Care Teacher Awards
Deadline: December 3, 2012

The Terri Lynne Lokoff Child Care Foundation is inviting applications for the Terri Lynne Lokoff/Children’s Tylenol National Childcare Teacher Awards.

The awards program is designed to acknowledge the critical role of childcare teachers in providing high-quality child care.

The program is open to child care teachers in the fifty states, the District of Columbia, and on all United States Military bases and installations. Applicants must be teachers of infants, toddlers, or preschool-age children, and must work full time in a home, group, or center-based program that is fully compliant with local and state regulations for operating childcare programs. Applicants must have been working as paid full-time childcare teachers in their current regulated program for a minimum of thirty-six consecutive months by December 2012, and programs must be open a minimum of ten hours a day, five days a week, twelve months a year. Only one application per center may be submitted.

Fifty award recipients will receive $1,000 — $500 to acknowledge each childcare teacher’s special dedication and $500 to fund a classroom enhancement project designed as part of the application process. The top ten qualifiers become finalists for the Helene Marks Award for the National Childcare Teacher of the Year. The teacher chosen as the Helene Marks Award recipient will receive an additional $1,000 award.
