We know that most early childhood directors have not received specialized training before being promoted into their leadership positions. For 28 years the McCormick Center for Early Childhood Leadership has focused on early childhood leadership. Our early years focused on research relating to the quality of work life of early childhood educators. Today, we focus on professional development, program evaluation, research, and public awareness to help cultivate leaders in early childhood education.
Are you one of the thousands of individuals who has participated in one of the McCormick Center’s leadership development initiatives? Whether it be Taking Charge of Change™, Aim4Excellence™ Online National Director’s Credential, Next Generation, or any other of our professional development opportunities, we need you to share your story. We need you to tell policy makers that “Leadership really does matter!”
