children deserve leaders who learn
LEADING FOR CHILDREN empowers every early childhood educator to realize the goal of improving outcomes for young children. To create the next generation of critical thinkers and leaders, Leading for Children believes we must ensure that every child has a sense of agency and for this to happen, children must learn in settings where the adults define themselves as leaders in a climate of optimism. True change comes from a holistic approach, one that engages the entire system and all players including caregivers, teachers, coaches, administrators, and families.
The Leading for Children Innovative Ideas Award is an opportunity to identify the great ideas of early childhood program directors. We know that early childhood educators are always finding new and creative ways to nurture and inspire children — our next generation of critical thinkers and leaders. Submit your innovative idea to increase family engagement or enhance your outdoor space. The winning idea will receive $2,500. Deadline for entries is April 15, 2017. Enter Here.
