The Jewish Early Childhood Education Leadership Institute, a new joint program of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America and Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in consultation with the Bank Street College of Education, has opened registration for the 2012 cohort.

The program includes:
- One orientation program in late spring
- Two weeks of study in NYC for two successive summers with educators from Bank Street College of Education, JTS and HUC-JIR
- One winter learning experience between summer sessions
- Continued learning and practice in your own school, with support via collegial technology platforms

The Leadership Institute is open to directors with less than five years' experience and to experienced teachers who aspire to leadership positions in the field.
