Leading with Intention
All children birth to five grow and learn in thriving and collaborative communities of empowered and nurturing adults.
Strengthen communities by advancing evidence-based approaches where adults collaborate equitably towards positive outcomes for children.
A Message from LFC Founder, Judy Jablon
As we embark on our seventh year, I wonder: what inspired me to start Leading for Children? I’ve come to understand that my inspiration came from my lived experiences. My five-year-old self was terrified to start kindergarten. So many reasons… As I entered the huge old building, my first day of school tears distressed my father, whose efforts to calm me failed. And then, when I approached the doorway of my new classroom, there was Mrs. Carlin, kneeling, with her warm smile and sparkling eyes. Her words of welcome conveyed that she saw me, not my tears and fears. Taking my hand, she assumed my competence at making a friend and led me to Carolyn, another five year old, already busy drawing. I settled right in with my new friend.
