Federation Early Learning Services Receives Shade Structure Grant

Federation Early Learning Services (FELS), a leading early care and education nonprofit organization serving the Greater Philadelphia area, has been awarded a Shade Structure Grant from the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD). The grant will enable a permanent shade structure to be built alongside the basketball court and swimming pool at Paley Early Learning Center that will protect over 150 children each day from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays.

“We are very grateful to the American Academy of Dermatology for awarding this grant opportunity to FELS and our Paley Early Learning Center,” said FELS President & CEO Taka Agawa. “This new shade structure will help us to provide additional measures to help keep our young children safe from the sun while still enjoying time outdoors.”
