The Leadership certificate in Early Childhood Educator offered a great review of early childhood education to those who have been in the field for a while. It provided an opportunity to learn new ways of doing things if you have not been in school for a while. The courses varied from communication skills, to budget/marketing so there was a wide range of topics that were studied throughout the courses.
