It is the only book structured around the thirteen competencies that capable, confident child development center directors must possess. This practical book by professor Patricia F. Hearron, a former child development center manager, and well-known author and professor emeritus Verna Hildebrand, focuses on targeted problem-solving strategies, decision-making, and specific tools. A classic in the field since 1984, the sixth edition of Management of Child Development Centers has been updated and expanded to emphasize strategies and solutions to the challenges facing today's child development center managers.

In this popular book, Hearron and Hildebrand position the child development program among the key components of a child's “ecosystem.” They show high-quality children's programs as essential support for a child's family—not as islands of education unconnected to the rest of a child's world. Coverage is clearly based on developmentally appropriate practices and the indicators of quality established by the NAEYC and organized around thirteen core competencies, with a full chapter devoted to each. The book is written in friendly, easy-to-understand language, and bolstered by learning aids, examples, and exercises that capture the reader's attention and keep it. For pre-school teachers and day-care personnel.From the Publisher:
