Early Education Network

Leadership Network

Join alongside early education program administrators, owners, directors, curriculum specialists and leaders for the opportunity to share ideas, challenges, and engage in building Biblical community.

We will explore timely information to support transformational leadership, share resources aligned with key ACSI initiatives, and ensure you receive consistent information about what is important to you such as recruiting and retaining students and staff, increasing revenue streams, navigating the changing CDC recommendations, and more. We will also review best practices in implementing each of the Flourishing School Culture domains with industry experts. Learn more about ACSI Early Education Events in the monthly issue of News and Nuggets.

The Peer Support Network is for EE Leaders who aspire to higher levels of competency.

The objectives of the Network are:
*to reduce isolation expressed by leaders in Christian early education, and
*to form a Biblical community and cohort of mutually supportive members
*to enhance their professional practice together. As such, the Network is designed to be accessible, easy, and fast to use.

The Peer Support Network model achieves this by:
*connecting leaders in early education to identify common professional challenges and explore potential solutions through discussion, webinars, and resource sharing
*facilitating forums for Directors and Educational Leaders to share and source expertise, advice, and information
identifying topical issues that will be addressed via live and in-person conferences and webinars
*providing online resource library of information, research, and tools
*to remain current and relevant to the changing needs of ACSI Members
*offering the service free to Members and ambassadors in Christian early education.
