As CMoR continues its quest of providing a world-class learning experience using a collaborative approach to prepare children to be kindergarten-ready, to demonstrate how play measurably improves early childhood development, and to provide greater access to CMoR programming and caregiver education in underserved populations, the organization is seeking an innovative, strategic visionary with verifiable leadership success to chart the course and lead the way forward.
