CAREER DEVELOPMENT

Early Care Professional
Training and Education

One of the Association’s primary functions is to provide professional development opportunities to strengthen the leadership skills of child care administrators and enhance the quality of early care learning programs. A director’s responsibilities are broad, the skills required to manage a program are diverse and time is a limited resource. We strive to provide directors with easy to access education and training by offering a variety of learning and support opportunities.

Our Professional Developement Opportunities Include:

WEBINARS

Free administrative and accreditation webinars are designed to accommodate the busy schedule of directors providing education and insight to all aspects of directing an early care and education program. Sessions by experts from around the country focus on leadership, administration, training, business practices, legal issues, program quality and resources. 

LEAD! REGIONAL TRAINING SERIES

This rotating two-day training event is designed to be affordable and accessible while providing high-impact information, resources, and professional development to leaders and emerging leaders in early care and education.

OWNERS EXECUTIVE SERIES

This comprehensive institute is designed for small groups of program owners to receive training and rejuvenation over a period of 3-4 days and is held in Cancun, Mexico.

ONLINE TRAINING

Divided into categories, we direct you to organizations that hold essential information that will assist you in connecting to valuable resources and information.

COVID-19 UPDATES

NATIONAL ACCREDITATION COMMISSION UPDATE: (6/1/2020)

Beginning 6/1/2020, the National Accreditation Commission will resume conducting validation visits. The Accreditation Office will work with individual programs to determine the impact of local restrictions on a potential visit. The safety of program families and staff and National Accreditation Commission validators is of the utmost importance and at the heart of all decisions made during the ongoing public health crisis. Please direct any questions and concerns to Erin Schmidt, Director of Accreditation, at [email protected]. Please monitor this website for further developments and updates. From the Accreditation Team to your team, stay safe and be well.

2020 NATIONAL CONFERENCE UPDATE: (7/6/2020)

The AELL Board of Directors met and made a unanimous decision to transition our 2020 conference to a virtual event for the safety and well-being of our participants, our staff, and our volunteers. This was not an easy decision, and tears were shed. This event has become a “reunion” each year as old friends and new come together to connect in meaningful and powerful ways.  Please know that our hearts hurt with yours that we won’t be together in-person this year.  We are saving hugs, high-fives, and fist bumps for Orlando 2021!
