The Early Childhood Administration, Management, and Leadership certificate program is designed to prepare educators to effectively manage child care centers or administer programs for young children. Learners explore the essential components of effective early childhood programs and develop the practical personnel and business management skills they need to lead those programs. Coursework covers effective program practices; budget and resource allocation; and personnel recruitment, evaluation, and management. Learners also consider and are provided tools to respectfully address the impact of diversity, culture, and equity issues on early childhood development. Learners can apply the credits they earn in this certificate program toward Walden’s M.S. in Early Childhood Studies with a specialization in Administration, Management, and Leadership.
