Early Ed Leadership & Innovation

We train frontline early educators and child care business owners in entrepreneurial leadership, and research ways to support them at scale

Leading for Change reunion!

Alums of our Leading for Change program recently gathered together at the Community Room at the Salty City Market in Syracuse to reconnect, share stories—and laugh! Leading for Change is offered in upstate New York through our partnership with the Syracuse-based Early Childhood Alliance Onondaga, a coalition of community stakeholders with a shared vision for a more coordinated and strategic early childhood system and which is funded through Home Grown’s Building Comprehensive Networks initiative.

Leading for Change in Early Care and Education was developed by the Institute for Early Education Leadership and Innovation at UMass Boston and anchors all of the Early Education Leadership Institute’s programs. Participants learn how to lead for change to improve program quality and promote equity in early care and education.

Leading for Change is currently offered to early educators in Massachusetts through the Institute’s Statewide Professional Development Academy. It is also offered to early educators in Maryland through the Maryland Early Childhood Leadership Education Program at the Shriver Center at the University of Maryland Baltimore County and in Pennsylvania through the Pennsylvania Key and the Pennsylvania’s Office of Child Development & Early Learning. It was offered to educators in California through a pilot program.
