The Art of Creating a Learning Community

It is important that the leadership discussion in the early childhood field blazes its own trail to create a new paradigm for early childhood leadership, for a number of reasons.

Four aspects of leadership that early childhood leaders need to know, understand and apply in their work:
1) professional knowledge;
2) professional identity;
3) the application of interpretive
lenses; and
4) relational trust.

Each of these aspects is interrelated and builds capacity in leaders and the early childhood profession to find a model of leadership that best suits their needs.
