Leadership Matters

Strong early childhood leadership positively impacts outcomes for children and families. Very few leaders arrive in their roles with all of the experience, education, or specialized training they need. The McCormick Center has played a critical role in increasing access to professional development and credentials for early childhood leaders. To date, nearly 35,000 early childhood leaders have received professional development through the McCormick Center.
