This network is for recently assigned preschool administrators, or administrators wishing to revisit foundational aspects of preschool administration.

  • begin to establish skills to self reflect on their progress as an instructional coach and leader
  • draft an internal monitoring plan to align proper implementation of timeline driven requirements through documentation and implementation
  • draft an annual calendar of routine department requirements, responsibilities, best practices, and action
