- Resources & Research
Your donation will have the largest impact on improving outcomes for young children when you support early childhood leadership. Research in the early childhood field demonstrates the critical role that the quality of children’s care and education programs plays in the development of the cognitive skills, social abilities, and healthy behaviors that prepare them to succeed in school and life. And with millions of young children in out-of-home care, leadership at these programs matters.
Help us raise at least $6,000 in support of early childhood leadership. Any donation amount gets us closer to our goal!
Spread the word. Tell your family and friends about the importance of leadership in early childhood education. Ask them to join you in making a difference in the quality of early childhood education for children and families.

We focus on the role of early childhood leaders as catalysts of program improvement and quality. To date, more than 35,000 leaders have participated in the McCormick Center’s variety of training programs.
