Leading for Children is a non-profit organization working in communities across the United States to provide the best early learning experiences for young children while creating environments where educators thrive. We support every educator, regardless of their role, to become the leader children need. We help stakeholders develop the trust, shared purpose, and commitment that is imperative for success in early learning.
We are driven by the vision of Judy Jablon, a long-time early educator and the founder and Executive Director of LFC:
To create the next generation of critical thinkers and leaders, we must ensure that every child has a sense of agency, that the child believes she can make things happen. This requires that children learn in settings where the adults define themselves as leaders in a climate of optimism. True change comes from a holistic approach, one that engages the entire system and all players including caregivers, teachers, coaches, administrators, and families.
