Participant Reflections

"The CEEL program has been a top professional opportunity for us. It fills a void in leadership training in the complex early education field. The chance to connect with leaders from across the globe and share insights on innovation paired with research-driven modules has made a great impact in implementation.

The readings, videos, and resources are uniquely curated to optimize our understandings in the field. We are better prepared to take on the daily challenges, and really shape our vision for improving the quality of early childhood programs."
