The Visionary Director—Going for Bigger Dreams!

Sponsored by the Nova Scotia Community College

Are you longing for more insight and satisfaction in your role as a program director? Leading early childhood programs requires complex skills, knowledge and fortitude. More than anything we need a clear vision and a framework for organizing our many tasks in the service of our dreams. This day long seminar will help you examine your values and how you can shape a vision around them. Specific strategies will be offered to consider how this would be reflected in the physical environment of your program, as well as the social emotional environment and the organizational climate. We will explore the difference between supervising and mentoring and offer strategies to work with your staff and families toward the vision you are developing for your program. Take advantage of this time to nurture yourself and your own professional development.
