Our vast experience with Early Childhood and OST programs over the past 25 years has provided us with the insight that program theory of change begins with leadership fully understanding their role as leaders. 

Our leadership and support services begin with professional development which enhance administrator’s understanding for the importance of creating a program infrastructure and disposition for continuous quality improvement, social emotional health, student engagement, and staff capacity building which aligns with their program mission and vision for quality. 

Administrators also receive coaching through a holistic approach that will guide them through the process of sound business practices, fiscal management, distributive leadership, and program operations.

Our leadership training and coaching modules include:

Director Leadership Series (4 Part Series)

  • This session will support administrative staff in learning how to inspire staff members who are “stuck”. Participants will look at several types of employees that present specific management challenges, will examine what is behind the behavior, and how to support varied learning styles to help them become more successful in the work environment.

     

     

     

     

  • Leaders will investigate how to capitalize on the human capital within their programs. As a leadership team, we will explore how the components of personal accountability, professional strengths and employee talents impact the organization, program, and individual performance.

  • Program owners, administrators, and leaders will examine strategies to accomplish a fluid vision that meets changing environments, cultures and economy. Participants will be provided with practical approaches that help leaders understand what is takes to “Stick to the plan...Make it clear... Be consistent”

  • “Change is the one constant and consistent thing in life” Participants will review how to build an organizational community to achieve MORE within a process of change and growth.

Program Administration Series (3 Part Series):

  • Staffing is your most costly expense. Learn how to staff for quality and supervision. What are the most cost effect staffing patterns that ensure classroom coverage, maintain ratios, and allow staff paid planning time? We will also discuss salary scales and benefits.

  • Having a risk management plan means a program has taken action to prevent disasters from happening and has prepared for emergencies. Learn how to develop policies and practices for keeping children and staff safe.
