Administration Of Programs For Young Children: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.


ADMINISTRATION OF PROGRAMS FOR YOUNG CHILDREN is a tried and true guide for early childhood education students who want to be directors, and a comprehensive resource for those who are already directors. The text emphasizes the role of leaders/managers and their function in relation to new staff, while simultaneously addressing the needs of children, parents, and other staff.

Coverage includes a wide variety of information about relevant program elements as well as methods and principles related to supervising student teachers, assistant teachers, teachers, parents, and volunteers. Real life scenarios equip working directors with problem solving techniques, readers also learn best practices in child care program management. Highlights of the Eighth Edition include a fresh new design, a new chapter on family child care, up to date technology information, and a new section on managing aggressive or violent children.

"Delightful, outstanding, superior, the best I've seen yet are just a few words I would use to describe the format of this text. As a professor, one item I am looking for is authors and textbooks that keep the pedagogy of college students in mind."

"Each chapter addresses an important area of early childhood administration, walking the student through set-up, hiring, budget, curriculum planning, parent relations, licensing, etc., a how to manual in many respects. The additions to this edition make it even more of an asset to a course and a potential teacher and/or administrator." -Cindy Waters, Ph.D., C.F.C.S.,Upper Iowa University, Fayette, IA.

"The greatest strength of this text is the comprehensive coverage about each topic. Throughout the text, the author provides a thorough discussion of each topic including lists and suggestions." -Phyllis Gilbert, M. Ed., M.S., Stephen F. Austin State University, Texas
