How Futuro Childcare and Education were inspired to try an innovative leadership approach

When the management team at soon-to-be-opened Futuro Childcare & Education advertised for educators to join their new service, they didn't expect to receive so many exceptional applications. Rather than turn quality educators away during such a challenging time for recruitment, they decided to look for ways to offer great opportunities to as many applicants as possible. 

After seeing our recent Amplify! article on distributed leadership at Euroka Children's Centre, the Futuro team decided to contact Euroka's Director Lorriene Bullivant to further explore the model. Find out how the Futuro team managed to attract such a great group of educators, what they learned from the team at Euroka, and what they are planning moving forward.
