Developing & Administering a Child Care Center: Professional Enhancement Text
Developing and Administering a Child Care and Education Program, 6th Edition serves as a clear guide for new and experienced directors and emphasizes the director?s responsibility for being both a program maintenance and a people maintenance leader. In keeping with the current movement to standards-based programs, the text guides directors to understanding their role in curriculum selection and development. The related issue of assessment is addressed in terms of what is appropriate for young children. Also presented are the business skills and knowledge that every director must have: funding, budgeting, selecting, training and supervising staff, housing the program, purchasing the equipment, and evaluating the program. Special features of the text include Director?s Resources, including forms and documents available for the director?s use on the job; a Director?s Library, which provides easy access to a wide range of sources of information for busy directors; a Director?s Corner feature that gives students an opportunity to learn the perspectives of working directors; and Working Papers to be used as student assignments.
