Social Leadership in Early Years

Social Leadership in Early Years (SLEY) is a research project jointly led by Dr Mona Sakr at Middlesex University and June O’Sullivan MBE, CEO of the London Early Years Foundation. We are working together with international partners to explore:

  1. the nature of social leadership in early years practice: what it looks and feels like
  2. the impact that social leadership can have on the everyday work of nurseries
  3. the training and experiences early years staff need in order to become strong social leaders

In November 2021, we’ll release the book ‘Social Leadership in Early Childhood Education’, based on research with global leaders of early childhood education.
