Learn + Grow Series

Heart of the Provider

Robin Slaton studied under Valorie Burton and is a certified Personal and Executive Coach from the Coaching and Positive Psychology Institute.  As providers, we serve children, families, and our staff.  To serve with optimal impact, we have to take time and care for ourselves.  This series is specifically designed to energize and transform early childhood professionals. 

Learn + Grow Series

Hand of the Provider

Michelle Barnes has served as CEO of a leading early childhood program for 22 years and has a M.Ed. in Leadership Development.  As administrators, we know the quality of service we provide children and families directly correlates to the quality of teachers we have in the classroom.  This series will focus on methods to nurture and retain our most precious resource, teachers.

Mental Health + Wellbeing

Monday Mindset

Each Monday, members receive an inspirational story or quote via email and posted on CECE’s private Facebook page.  Your week is based on your attitude; so let’s make sure you start with a positive and uplifting mindset.

A good coach doesn’t provide the answers.  Rather they ask challenging questions to provide perspective and encouragement which can lead to impactful realizations.  With the inspirational quote comes a simple, yet powerful coaching question.  We encourage our members to answer the question on our Facebook page and read the thoughts of other members.

Mental Health + Wellbeing

Well-Being Wednesday

Bi-weekly, members will receive a link to a Well-Being TikTok video.  Each video is focused on your health and mental wellness.  Additionally, we will provide links to books and articles to dive deeper into specific topics.

Guest Speakers

Quarterly guest speakers will offer one-hour zoom sessions on a variety of topics meaningful to you (staffing, team culture, social media, work-life balance, difficult parents, family engagement, leadership, and more).  Surveys will go out to members to understand interest and needs.  We want to ensure topics are relevant and timely to meet your needs.
