Leadership and Management in Early Childhood Services ESH348

Launceston

Introduction

Early childhood educators need particular leadership and management strategies to participate effectively in shared decision-making for the development of high quality programs and services for all stakeholders. This involves knowing how leadership and management structures and styles, including policy procedures and requirements, impact on programs and service provision. Creating collegial, collaborative and supportive working environments for all stakeholders is therefore critical in building capacity and leading teams competently. This knowledge helps individuals to build on the skills and dispositions necessary in becoming effective leaders and managers in early childhood services.
