"Administration of Programs for Young Children" is now out in the 7th edition. It is a tried and true guide for early childhood education students who want to be directors, and a source of information for those who are already directors of early childhood programs. This new edition provides the latest information from the NAEYC regarding guidelines for infant sleeping arrangements, accreditation of programs for young children, and what abilities and knowledge teachers should possess. It includes an expanded discussion of the budget process as well as sound business practices and marketing strategies. The text provides current information about children's nutritional requirements that are encompassed in the new Food Guide Pyramid. The causes of staff turnover are presented followed by a discussion of how to prevent it, and an appendix completely covers the latest information about computerized data management programs that enable directors to facilitate bookkeeping and record keeping tasks. An additional new appendix provides the student with reproducible forms needed for the operation of a child development program (pending).
With real life scenarios to help the student grasp the content, "Administration of Programs for Young Children, 7e" is the complete resource for the aspiring child development program director or the already practicing professional.
