Organizational Leadership in Early Care and Education

Organizational Leadership in Early Care and Education

About this Course

Early childhood program leaders have two distinct areas of focus. Organizational leadership, which refers to the day-to-day operations and management of the business, and instructional leadership, which is the support of teachers in creating high-quality interactions, implementing developmentally appropriate practices, and building relationships with the children and families in their program. Both areas are essential to the success of an early learning program. This course will provide supports for becoming an effective organizational leader so that that the administrative side of programs will thrive. This will set the stage for high-quality developmentally appropriate practices to be implemented.
