Discover your leadership potential today.

Information and application packet for the spring 2015 cohort is available upon request and dependent upon space availability.

Who Should Attend: Ideal for anyone who wants to lead, those who have completed the six-course Administrator Credential and/or Program Development Credential, or any early childhood professional looking to take their leadership to the next level.

Our Early Childhood Leadership program is a sustained and intentional effort to grow leaders, build leadership capacity, and encourage networking, collaboration and engagement among leaders. The outcome is an empowered group of early childhood leaders who make a lasting difference for children, parents, families and early childhood programs in the greater Milwaukee area and across Wisconsin. This four-course series is a companion to the six Administrator Credential courses. While the first six courses were essentially about management, these courses are about leadership.

Early Childhood Leadership Courses:

  • The Personal Disposition of a Leader

  • Leading in Your Program

  • Leading in Your Community and the Field

  • Leading for Change
