About the ECE Fellowship for Leadership and Excellence
The development of leaders, in classrooms and school administration, is a necessary step toward educational excellence. Skilled leaders raise the level of all staff, leading to better teacher retention, job satisfaction and measurable student success. The Jewish Early Childhood Education Fellowship for Leadership and Excellence was a two-year leadership professional development program that connected Jewish "big ideas" with cutting edge early childhood education practice. By strengthening community preschools, families' connection to the Jewish community and Jewish life would be enhanced during the early childhood years and beyond.
