Leadership and Management Presentation

Prior to beginning work on this assignment, review the web page Early Learning Program Accreditation Standards & Assessment Items (Links to an external site.) with particular attention to Standard 10: Leadership and Management. For this assignment you will be creating a presentation using either PowerPoint or Prezi (Links to an external site.). For assistance, view How to make a PowerPoint Presentation (Links to an external site.).

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.
