`I found this book really insightful and a manageable read - everything is broken down into easy to read chunks. I've taken a lot from the book and the main message for me was that you need to be confident about your ideas, vision and objectives as a person as well as a manager.' - Laura Watkins, manager at St Mary's Fun Club, St Mary's C of E Primary School, Barnsley, UK

Managers in child-centred settings need to be able to draw on a wide range of personal and professional skills to ensure that they are providing the best possible service. Now in its second edition, Essential Skills for Managers of Child-Centred Settings looks at how you can develop the key leadership skills needed to manage people to achieve excellent settings for children.

The authors outline ten `essential skills' for leading and supporting those around you in your child-centred settings and offer sound advice so you can build your personal and professional skills and become a confident and assertive manager. With a balance of both accessible theory and practical application from a wide range of settings, this book explains management theory and will help you to develop the skills to:

Become a confident leader;

Set clear aims and objectives for your setting;

Manage your time effectively;

Make decisions and implement change;

Build and develop a team;

Reflect on and develop practice;

This book also contains case studies and `real-life' scenarios from managers undertaking training with the authors which will ensure you provide an excellent service in your setting. No manager or leader should be without this user-friendly guide!
