Leadership Development & Supervisory Training

Happy New Year! I hope that you had wonderful holidays. The beginning of the year is an exciting time.  It’s a great time to make plans for the coming year.

When thinking about key steps to take to create a high quality program, I’m sure that developing leaders is near the top of the list. It’s important to have strong leaders in place across your program. They are responsible for leading and supervising the staff who provide direct services to the children and families.

Training on leadership development and how to successfully supervise staff is critical for your Content Area Managers, Center Directors and other supervisors. Managers need the skills to be an effective leader as well as the tools to guide and support their staff. It’s important that supervisors achieve buy-in with their employees. When staff feels that their supervisor is invested in them and their success, staff will give 100% to their job. This is especially important in this case as their job is to provide high quality services to the children and families.

We provide highly interactive Management Training that includes training on leadership development as well as training on supervising staff.  This training includes topics such as:

  • Leadership versus management;
  • Identifying your supervisory style;
  • Your role and responsibilities as a supervisor;
  • Setting expectations and accountability; and
  • Giving staff the tools to be successful.

Practice-Based CLASS Training

As you know, it’s essential to have and maintain high CLASS scores. Having high scoring classrooms is a great indicator of positive teacher/child interactions that effectively support children’s learning and development. This leads to successful CLASS Reviews as well as best practices in the classroom.

Effective CLASS training consists of keeping the participants highly engaged by utilizing a “learning by doing” approach. It’s based on the principles of adult learning, which results in high impact learning. Training participants can then take back the information that they learned and implement it immediately. Adult learning is most effective when the participants can see, feel and experience the information that is being presented. This includes utilizing a variety of learning styles throughout the training.

We provide highly interactive and practice-based CLASS training designed to increase CLASS scores. It will be custom designed to meet the specific needs of your Head Start program. It can cover all of the domains and dimensions – or focus on specific domains or dimensions. You can expect hands-on training that includes specific examples and strategies in terms of the Head Start classroom. The training participants will have many opportunities to see what high-scoring domains and dimensions look like. A variety of learning styles will be explored, such as:

  • Small group activities;
  • Video clips;
  • Practice scoring;
  • Pair and share;
  • Role plays;
  • Question and answer sessions; and
  • Interactive exercises.
