How Do They Manage?: A Review of the Research on Leadership in Early Childhood
Muijs, Daniel; Aubrey, Carol; Harris, Alma; Briggs, Mary
Journal of Early Childhood Research, v2 n2 p157-169 2004
This article presents the findings from a review of literature on leadership in early childhood (EC). It identifies a paucity of research, despite a high potential for leadership activity in the early childhood field. It concludes that there is a clear need to identify what effective leadership practice is in terms of processes and outcomes within this field. It also concludes that theoretically based studies that allow different models and characteristics to be empirically tested are long overdue. The serious lack of leadership training is also highlighted by the literature review, which means that many early childhood managers could be significantly under-prepared for their role.
