Review: The Midwest Book Review- California Bookwatch February 2010 - February 1, 2010
The Visionary Director: A Handbook for Dreaming, Organizing, and Improvising in Your Center is a 'must' for any early education library. It appears in its second edition to reflect the latest best practices and blends in new requirements for early childhood programs. From frameworks for organizing work and clarifying principles and strategies to examples of how to translate values into center practices, this is a director's bible of facts.
Review: February 2010 Book News Inc. - February 1, 2010
Aimed at childcare center directors, this handbook explains how to develop leadership and organizational systems in a way that is related to a clear vision and set of values. They describe the principles and strategies for supporting a vision of early childhood programs as learning communities, and the three aspects of a director's work: building and supporting a community, mentoring and coaching, and managing and overseeing. Elements such as budgeting, fundraising, and financial management are not covered. This edition has been updated and revised to reflect current best practices and incorporates new requirements and initiatives in early childhood programs. It has a new chapter containing stories of directors and more emphasis on creating organizational structures and systems to support a vision. Carter has been a teacher, curriculum developer, childcare director, and college instructor. Curtis has been an infant/toddler caregiver, childcare teacher, education coordinator, college instructor, and assistant director of a childcare program. (Annotation 2010 Book News Inc.
