Join a leadership cohort. The McCormick Center’s two Leadership Academies offer transformational learning through a professional learning community that meets over an extended period of time. Taking Charge of Change™ (TCC) and Taking the Lead (TTL) are uniquely tailored to center-based and home-based program administrators, respectively, in Illinois. College credit and professional development credentials are available for TCC and TTL participants, providing a career pathway for leaders in early childhood education.
Applications for Taking the Lead are not currently being accepted because a cohort is currently underway. Subscribe to our email list to get notified when we begin accepting applications for the next cohort.
College credit through National Louis University (NLU) is available for TCC and TTL at an additional cost. Scholarships and financial aid may be available to help you cover the cost.
