Grant recognizes important work of ECLC staff

Barbara Traweek is director of the Cohn Early Childhood Learning Center.

Earlier this month the Cohn Early Childhood Learning Center was awarded a Child Care Workforce Stabilization grant from the Alabama Department of Human Resources. The grant will help the ECLC keep its high standards by enabling the payment of two years of quarterly bonuses based on full- or part-time employment, with up to $1,500 per quarter paid to full-time staff members. 

“We are beyond thrilled to be recipients of this CCWS grant,” says ECLC Director Barbara Traweek. “It is our hope that the additional funds will help us attract and retain the best teachers for our preschool programs.”

The ECLC is committed to providing safe, nurturing, and developmentally appropriate learning for children through play and guided discovery in a warm and loving environment.
