ECLC's ​Early Care Management Training, New Director's Institute and workshops support child care center directors in all counties across the state by training both new and experienced child
​care center directors in all topics essential to running a safe, high quality program.

Directing a child care center is a complex and demanding job. Directors must have an in-depth understanding of how to provide children with high quality, developmentally appropriate early care and learning experiences. At the same time, they must master an array of skills needed to operate their centers efficiently.

Supported by the New York State Office of Children and Family Services (OCFS), the Early Care & Learning Council's Management Training workshops provide training and technical assistance designed to help center directors meet these challenges. These programs are offered to all center directors and CCR&R staff members at no cost.

​​Positive qualities of mind, like compassion, patience, forgiveness and empathy are cultivated through daily practice. The more we nurture healthy mental habits in ourselves, like mindfulness, our capacity to enjoy life expands.  Regardless of what’s transpiring externally, when a mindfulness practice is firmly rooted in our lives, we are able to experience more joy, and greater resilience.  Rather than being caught in a loop of anxiety over past events or worrying about future what-ifs, we become more aware and awake to the present moment, to this moment.  Happiness then, depends upon our willingness to create a routine built around mindfulness and simple awareness. When we commit to creating this reality for ourselves, our experience of life shifts.

“Mindfulness meditation doesn’t change life.  Life remains as fragile and unpredictable as ever.  Meditation changes the heart’s capacity to accept life as it is.”  ~Sylvia Boorstein

In this training, long-time meditator and teacher, Jeannie Thomma, will guide you through a series of exercises that will serve as the foundation for creating a mindfulness practice.  Meditation is an essential element of any mindfulness practice, and in this workshop, you’ll be introduced to a variety of tips, tricks and tools you can use on your journey to nurturing a calmer and more peaceful you.  You’ll experience a variety of basic meditation techniques, each of which will offer you a slightly different point of entry into this powerful practice.  By experiencing a collection of techniques, you’ll be able to choose those that you like best to build your own healthy mindfulness routine.  With regular practice, you, too, can train your mind to focus on the positive aspects of your life, and become a happier, kinder, more compassionate person—toward yourself and others.
