ECE Certified Leadership
Development Program

A premier leadership program for owners and operators of Early Childcare and Education(ECE) Schools.

Quite often, we find there are a variety of backgrounds within the ECE industry. Some come from the education field or in-home care, while others come from a greater business background. With this comes varying degrees of management and leadership abilities.

Typically, our owners and operators have little formal management training, and their management teams are composed of teachers and care staff who evolved into directors.

In any situation, the way a team is managed will directly impact your culture, teacher stability, team morale, enrollment growth, and ability to handle daily challenges.

What is the difference between Managing and Leading?

Managers seek control.——> Leaders inspire trust.

Managers focus on getting work done.——> Leaders empowering others.

With the IC360 ECE Certified Leadership Development Program, you will take a significant step forward in becoming that leader.
