ECEBC is launching the Leading in a Changing Environment: Promoting the Voices of BC’s Early Care and Learning Sector program (called, Leading Change for short).


The Leading Change program will take place over an 18-month span (May 2022-October 2023), with a total of 36 Early Childhood Educators from across the province. We are looking for ECE’s who are interested in developing a local community change project that positively impacts the early years sector.
Each month, the participants will come together in a community of practice session to talk about the tools, skills, and supports needed to develop and action their change projects. Professional development hours will be allocated, and fiscal compensation provided for time spent in these monthly sessions. Participants will also form small peer cohorts (2-3 ECE’s per group) to support one another through the Leading Change journey.
We are grateful to our partner, Social Research Demonstration Corporation (SRDC) for joining us in the project evaluation of this initiative and thankful for the funding from Women and Gender Equality Canada. We are also receiving guidance from our friends, esteemed colleagues, and advisors: Metis Nation BC, Child Care Advocates of BC, and a past leadership alumni member.
Our profession is seeing unprecedented change and our ECE voices are needed to highlight the uniqueness and needs of the sector as we move forward. The Leading Change program builds off past successes with ECEBC’s leadership in community and provides us with new opportunities to respond to and help influence the changes occurring in our Early Years sector.
Applications are now open on the Leading Change page on our ECEBC website and will close on April 29t at 5:00pm. Educators can apply on their own, apply with one other ECE, or apply as a team of three. If you have questions about the program, you will find a detailed Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section on the website. We will also be hosting a Question and Answer zoom conversation on April 20th at 6:30 (sign up via our social media links).
