During this module, we will focus on establishing the critical foundation needed for developing an inclusive childcare program.  We will identify leadership styles based on values and beliefs, and define your philosophy on inclusion. This training will also explore comprehensive and effective inclusion policies to include in your program handbook.  Because building an effective team is critical, we will discuss strategies for recruiting, selecting and orienting staff and other team members.

This training is intended for directors and those in leadership positions.
