This session is brought to you in partnership with The Ounce.
We know that optimal family and developmental outcomes for children are largely dependent on the relationships, skills, and consistency of positive interactions by center-based and home visiting professionals. To date, most research and efforts to improve the outcomes of early childhood services have primarily been focused on what practitioners do with children in the classroom or with a family during a home visit. But what is revealed when we look more broadly at the experience of practitioners in the field of home visiting and early childhood education today?
What strategies emerge for improvement when we systematically examine the conditions of the organization and supervision that create the context of a practitioner’s work with families? This interactive session creates a forum for leaders and supervisors to explore common challenges and strategies that strengthen the impact of their role to optimize the experience and effectiveness of practitioners. It features current research, resources, and strategies that improve conditions that support the success of practitioners in outcome achievement with families.

I have been to management workshops, not leadership training. This has totally changed my perspective and encouraged me to propel forward in developing my skills.
I am honored and humbled to be a recipient of the Region 9 Head Start Association’s Legacy Scholarship. The scholarship helped me get one step closer to achieving my goal of becoming a Head Start Director.
I took part in The disproportionate impact of COVID 19, and how to provide “real” support for black/brown children and families and I just want to say this was an amazing webinar. I hope we can look forward to further conversation on this topic.
Thank you so much for making events like this! I really enjoyed and learned so much teaching strategies to implement STEM in the classroom.
The HR Network was an excellent opportunity to network and learn the best practices from other HR professionals within Head Start programs. You will be amazed by the level of talent and experience of the participants.
The Summer Camp training was powerful and inspiring! Each presenter was very engaging, it’s hard to even pick a favorite session!
The Leadership Challenge training was very relevant to my work as a Head Start leader! Great facilitation; stayed with the program yet allowed time for individual and small group reflections.
