Kindergarten as a learning organization requires comprehensive and supportive leadership. Creating a thriving, continuously developing kindergarten needs a clear vision, shared goals, and a constructive leadership approach.

The kindergarten leader’s job is about human interaction. Their leadership responsibilities are connected to the people around them, which they need to inspire, motivate and support in their development. But in order to fulfill these responsibilities, they need to take the lead of themselves.

This course helps you to strengthen your own professional development and self-leadership as a kindergarten leader.
