Leadership in Early Childhood free pdf "!the new edition of Jillian's book is timely and much needed by early years practitioners. We are in a time when early years provision is expanding rapidly and multi-agency working is increasing. The complexity of leading in early years services requires practitioners who are confident in their own role and able to work creatively with large multi agency teams. This book offers advice, support and most importantly encouragement to those who are taking on these challenging but immensely rewarding roles." Bernadette Duffy, Thomas Coram Early Childhood Centre "This erudite, scholarly and comprehensive new work draws on a qualitative study to reflect the voices of early childhood practitioners from a number of countries whose words enrich and give life to the text. This new edition is a must for those teaching, contemplating, engaged in, or studying leadership and its attendant issues.' Ann Langston, Manchester Metropolitan University "Rodd's book is at once timely and empowering ..." Associate Professor Manjula Waniganayake, Macquarie University With community insistence on quality early childhood programs in a time of increasing accountability, skilled leadership is essential in early childhood services. Leadership in Early Childhood is a practical resource for early childhood practitioners who want to understand how to create successful childcare and early education settings. This third edition has been fully revised and reflects important changes affecting leaders in early childhood: increasing flexibility required of children's services, working in multidisciplinary teams, and an increasing emphasis on the importance of early education. This edition also includes new case studies and examples based on an extensive international study of early childhood leaders. Leadership in Early Childhood has been widely used in early childhood education services and as a professional reference and remains a valuable resource for both students and practitioners.
