The McCormick Center faculty can help your organization or agency design and implement leadership training for center-based early childhood administrators in your community, region, or state. Our goal is to help you develop a cadre of trainers who can implement the Director’s Toolbox Management Series. We can offer training on the full management series or focus on just a few topics.
In partnering with different organizations and state agencies over the past two decades, we have learned that the supports needed for leadership and management training vary considerably across the country. Some states have implemented a comprehensive professional development system that includes a director credential. Other states have very few professional development requirements or supports in place for early childhood administrators. We’ll work with you to design a model that fits your needs.
One popular model is for McCormick Center faculty to present a three-day training. The first two days consist of two of the topics in the Director’s Toolbox series presented to a group of center directors in your community along with your agency’s trainers. On the third day, only the trainers meet with McCormick Center faculty. Time is spent going through the trainer’s guides in detail, practicing different presentation techniques, and exploring options for tailoring the content for different audiences.
