EDUC 3011 - Making Connections: Managing and Leading Early Childhood Programs♦


(2 cr.) Managing child development centers in the 21st century requires a complex array of leadership skills and dispositions. In this course, education professionals explore the various types, purposes, and theoretical foundations of child development programs, and they examine the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) core competencies for directors. They engage in discussions and assignments that emphasize the leader’s role in managing the organization as a whole, including overseeing regulatory and business concerns, establishing policies and procedures, and implementing the organization’s mission and vision.
