FELS Teacher Receives National Child Care Teacher Award

Laura Abel, a seasoned lead teacher at the Kehillah Early Learning Center, has been chosen as one of the  recipients of the Terri Lynne Lokoff Child Care Foundation (TLLCCF) National Child Care Teacher Award.  She was selected  based on her professional background and the project that she submitted, creating a STEM based travel center.  A committee of early childhood educators and specialists review the applications from child care teachers from all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Winners receive $1,000 ($500 for the teacher’s personal use and $500 to implement the project).  Winners who live far away  are flown to Philadelphia and housed at a hotel.  All are treated to a very  special weekend filled with gifts and surprises including  participation in an award ceremony.

We are so proud of Laura for her exciting achievement and congratulate Laura DuBois, our Kehillah Center Director, for her support of this exemplary teacher!
