Summary
"Directors and other administrators are important contributors to quality in children's programs. In this timely volume, leading authorities provide an up-to-date resource on the past, present, and future role of the administrator in early childhood programs and analyze current efforts to create professional credentialing. The contributors address the important issues of professionalism, career development, and leadership and link these to the critical practice and policy issues that directors face every day."--BOOK JACKET
