Early childhood administrators need to be well-versed in standards set by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). Having comprehensive knowledge of these standards will help to ensure a quality early childhood program.

Rationale:

Excellent programming requires effective governance structures, competent and knowledgeable leadership, as well as comprehensive and well-functioning administrative policies, procedures, and systems. Effective leadership and management create the environment for high-quality care and education by

  • Ensuring compliance with relevant regulations and guidelines;
  • Promoting fiscal soundness, program accountability, effective communication, helpful consultative services, positive community relations, and comfortable and supportive workplaces;
  • Maintaining stable staff; and
  • Instituting ongoing program planning and career development opportunities for staff as well as continuous program improvement.

Application:

You are the director of your own childcare center. Using Standard 10 in Early Learning Program Accreditation Standards & Assessment Items (Links to an external site.) as a guide, create an eight- to 10-slide Prezi (Links to an external site.) or PowerPoint presentation to share with your staff, demonstrating the following NAEYC points:

  • Effective communication
    • Explain how you will effectively communicate with your staff.
    • Create a protocol for how you will communicate with them, and how you want them to communicate with you.
    • Describe what role you will play in family communication and your expectations for their family communication.
  • Comfortable and supportive workplaces
    • Describe how you will create a comfortable and supportive workplace for your staff.
    • Develop a plan that addresses how you will overcome potential challenges you may face.

    • Discuss how you will create professional development opportunities for your staff.
    • Plan a 10-month calendar of professional development opportunities that you feel are important for your staff. Visit this web page for helpful Calendar Templates (Links to an external site.).

    • Explain how you will attract and retain quality staff members.
    • Develop a plan of specifically how you will support the following:
      • new staff
      • veteran staff
      • staff that need additional support

Your eight- to 10-slide Prezi (Links to an external site.) or PowerPoint presentation (in addition to your title and reference slides) should

  • Creatively address the material including graphics, visuals, charts, graphs, or sound;
  • Be designed to clearly and concisely address the material;
  • Be formatted according to APA style, including the title slide, reference slide, and in-text citations;
  • Utilize the notes section of the PowerPoint to expand on the presented points. These notes would be your talking points when presenting this to your staff; and
  • Use at least one source in addition to the course text.
