Administration of Programs for Young Children provides essential lessons in operating a quality early childhood education program. Students and program directors will find the content invaluable for planning programs, implementing objectives, recruiting, hiring and training staff, maintaining quality and working with parents. Several chapters are devoted to planning for specific age groups, including an overview of the development of children and suggestions for setting up stimulating, safe environments for each age group. Additional strengths include current concerns over ethical conduct, the use of computers for streamlining administrative tasks and a credential specifically for early childhood education directors.
