Based on the premise that high-quality programs for young children are an essential support for families—a part of the family ecosystem—this resource demonstrates how managers of programs for young children must understand the value of family, as well as the relationships between family, program, and community.

 

Part I of Management of Child Development Programs provides an overview of the demographic and theoretical context within which child development programs operate. Part II focuses on 12 core competencies, derived from a review of currently literature in the field and aligned with NAEYC accreditation criteria, including: personal and professional self-awareness; organizational, fiscal, and personnel management; human relations; facilities management; health and safety; food service; educational programming; family support; marketing and public relations; assessment and evaluation.
