Executive Director of Early Learning

Elwyn, a leading non-profit organization supporting individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and behavioral health needs, seeks a dynamic, strategic, and experienced leader to serve as its next Executive Director of Early Learning (ED or executive director), one of the children’s services provided by the organization. Supported by a dedicated and experienced leadership team, the executive director will oversee all business operations of the Preschool Early Intervention (EI) program in the cities of Philadelphia and Chester. The ED will work alongside children and families, staff, city leadership, and external partners to sustain and build upon Elwyn’s distinguished role in early intervention and leadership in the field.

Since its founding in 1852, Elwyn has built upon its legacy as one of the country’s oldest organizations serving people with intellectual and developmental disabilities by focusing on three major service areas: Adult Behavioral Health, Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Services, and Children’s Services. The organization’s many layers of care are unified by a common commitment to serving the community with support that transforms lives. 

The Early Learning Services (ELS) program at Elwyn supports eligible young children with developmental delays and disabilities by providing quality preschool early intervention services that promote long-term positive outcomes. The executive director will implement a strategic vision, structure, and organization to ensure eligible children in the cities of Philadelphia and Chester receive early intervention services in a timely manner. Building on years of experience or understanding of city systems, they will ensure program compliance, efficient and strategic data management, and continuous improvement in accordance with Elwyn’s vision, mission, and values.
