Attention Child Care Providers… Have you ever had an idea and wanted to be able to talk it through with a peer? Are you currently facing a leadership challenge in your career? The Center for Early Childhood Leadership and Professional Development Mentor Program is here to help!

Click here to complete a short survey to see if having a mentor might be a good fit for you. Once you submit the completed survey and are accepted into the program, you will be given the names and credentials of early childhood professionals from eastern Kansas who have made the commitment to share their time and talents with other providers. You will be able to choose a mentor you think will be most helpful to you. If you have questions or would like more information, contact Michelle at 785-440-4524 or michelle@east.ks.childcareaware.org. Space is limited.                         

This initiative is funded through a grant from the Kansas Health Foundation.
