ADMINISTRATION OF PROGRAMS FOR YOUNG CHILDREN, International Edition is a tried and true guide for early childhood education students who want to be directors, and a comprehensive resource for those who are already directors.

Coverage includes a wide variety of information about relevant program elements as well as methods and principles related to supervising student teachers, assistant teachers, teachers, parents, and volunteers. Real-life scenarios equip working directors with problem- solving techniques; readers also learn best practices in child care program management. Highlights of the Eighth Edition include a fresh new design, a new chapter on family child care, up-to-date technology information, and a new section on managing aggressive or violent children.
