Part 2, Operationalizing the Early Childhood Program, addresses important administrative topics, such as staffing, facility planning, funding, and marketing. Part 3, Implementing the Children’s Program, discusses the administrator’s role in planning and overseeing the program’s services, from issues of nutrition, health, and safety, to assessment, to collaboration with families and the community.
