"Many directors of early childhood programs are doing amazing things, but so often we find ourselves feeling isolated. As a result of the Leadership Journey Series, directors from programs of different sizes, settings and philosophical backgrounds have been able to come together to voice concerns and work cohesively to not only understand one another, but to share our wisdom and develop stronger individual programs."
