The Human Side of Child Care Administration: A How-To Manual.
Produced as the result of a leadership training course for early childhood program directors and designed to be used by directors as an independent guide, this manual is a practical resource for program directors who do not have the time or funds to obtain the specialized training needed for effective administration. Contents focus on basic administrative functions such as communicating effectively, developing administrative policies and procedures, interviewing and hiring staff, conducting meetings of staff and parents, motivating and evaluating staff, solving problems and managing change, and planning and managing finances. Providing essential and basic information related to each topic, each section addresses a specific management or administrative responsiblity of the preschool or day care center director. Topics are addressed concisely, examples relevant to child care are used, and worksheets and exercises to facilitate learning are provided. (RH)
