Leadership Concepts and Theories: Reflections for Practice for Early Childhood Directors
Nupponen, Hanna
Australian Journal of Early Childhood, v31 n1 p43-50 Mar 2006
This paper proposes that effective leadership is a vital component in providing quality childcare services. It suggests that developing an enhanced understanding of effective leadership frameworks can be a starting point for a quality process and can forge a commitment to working towards excellence in early childhood centres, as well as be a tool for self-reflection. Theories of leadership are outlined for future preparation of leaders in a complex environment in which centres now operate.
