Dorothy June Sciarra, Ed.D, Anne Dorsey

  • Published
  • 224 Pages


"Leadership and Supervision in Child Care Centers" provides information on leadership and supervision for the undergraduate or graduate student studying early childhood education administration. This book can be a companion piece to "Developing and Administering a Child Care Center" (Sciarra and Dorsey), as it includes many of the features of the administration book such as Class Exercises, Class Assignments, and numerous sample forms and documents. Chapters on leadership cover many areas including the leader as a role model of good communication and professional behavior, and the leader as change agent. Supervision is addressed in four chapters that include detailed information on developing and implementing an effective supervisory program and staff orientation program.
