9780023545221: Management Child Development Centers

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:

Designed to prepare students to manage high-quality early childhood programs that enhance the development of young children, this text provides comprehensive treatment of the special mix of child development and childcare management principles, skills, knowledge, and attitudes that will ensure success. Contemporary in perspective, it addresses all principles and skills that early childhood program managers need to provide services that are culturally responsive, inclusive, and sensitive to a variety of family needs. Center accreditation is highlighted throughout as is parental involvement in each child's education and care.
