Nothing happens in early childhood except in a system. That system has profound influence on whether what happens is successful and supportive of children … or is not. But too few early childhood professionals understand how early childhood systems work at the local, state or national level. This session provides a primer on systems thinking and systems leadership, and how these concepts apply to early childhood systems. Through simple explanations and focused discussion, this session will help you become more adept at understanding how best to operate within your system.
