NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Kelly Phillips, a long-time early educator at Child Care of the Berkshires, has been named the Early Educator of the Year Award by the The Massachusetts Association of Early Education & Care, a statewide association of early education providers and after school programs.

Phillips is a director at the Monument Square Early Childhood Center in North Adams. During her tenure at CCB, Phillips has overseen the renovation of the Monument Square Center and is spearheading current playground renovation plans. Under her leadership, Monument Square has achieved National Accreditation status and is at the highest level of  the State’s Quality Rating Scale.

"I am so pleased to see Kelly receive this award,” said Anne Nemetz Carlson, president and CEO of Child Care of the Berkshires. “Kelly has been with Child Care of the Berkshires for the past 18 years and models nurturing and support to both children and their parents, on a daily basis. She is passionate about quality early care and education, and has embraced many of the new initiatives in the field. She is most deserving of this recognition. “

The association annually recognizes an early educator in Massachusetts for their commitment to the field of Early Education and their work with our State’s youngest children.

“This award is well deserved – a generation of Berkshire County children and their families have led a far better life due to Kelly’s tireless efforts on their behalf,” said MACDA Executive Director William J. Eddy. “We’re proud to recognize all that Kelly has done to advance the field of early education.”

Founded in 1972, MADCA is the trade association for child care providers in Massachusetts, representing the public policy and advocacy interests of more than 600 child care centers, school age providers, and 2,200 family child care providers.
