From the Jacket

With a direct, applications-based approach and a focus on the most groundbreaking of recent research, Hewes and Leatherman prepare students to develop their own administrative program for early childhood education and to succeed amid increasingly rigorous demands. The authors of this unique new workbook encourage students to be actively involved in their own learning, consistently delivering real-world examples and activities such as “What Would You Do?” questioning segments. Personalized student worksheets throughout the text help readers connect their own experiences, knowledge, interests, and goals to major chapter content.

Emphasizing the acquisition of director accreditation, An Administrator''s Guidebook to Early Care and Education provides comprehensive coverage of professional development, team building, and NAEYC accreditation guidelines. Students learn how to keep their own books with a minicourse in financial systems, accounting, and budgeting. Communication strategies are explored in a chapter on working with families, and health, safety, and nutrition concerns are thoroughly covered, including menu planning, first aid, and CPR. Highly readable and based on proven research, this superb new text helps students actively acquire the skills and strategies to succeed in their profession.
