Mindful Leadership

3 Clock Hour of Early Childhood Education
Child care professionals enter the field because of a passion and desire to help children grow and develop in a safe and nurturing environment. Directors, assistant directors and lead teachers also share in this passion and are responsible for supporting and encouraging their colleagues. This course is designed to provide real-world suggestions and information to leadership staff in supporting staff members to boost morale, encourage program efficiency, build community within the program, and ultimately create a positive work environment that carries over to the individual classrooms. Also included in this training is a detailed explanation of common professional development opportunities.

  • Discuss and reflect upon past experiences in child care with the intent to form positive outcomes in the future
