Within each educator there lies a passion, experience and knowledge. We believe it is important to build a culture that supports educators to use their passion, skills and the ability to lead. Leadership means inspiration to and from children and colleagues that challenges, responds and reflects on our practice. Through deep reflection in our work, we can become critical friends in our collaborations and grow in our practice. We will explore the areas of leadership opportunities, whether it be building administrative strengths or as pedagogical leaders through the development of mentor educators, and growth in our capacity and ability through the engagement of our whole team. We will explore the impact that this approach has had on the educator’s sense of confidence, satisfaction in their work, hiring and retention in a distributive leadership model.
