Review by: Kay Albrecht - December 21, 2017
Twelve Essential Topics in Early Childhood is potentially a game changer as administrators learn by implementing well planned teacher training. A wonderful addition to both the novice and experienced administrator's tool kit.
Review by: MaryAnn Kohl - December 21, 2017
I highly recommend this book of training sessions not only to trainers, but also to child care resource and referral staff and other specialists from all walks in early childhood. Twelve topics are completely developed for trainings, clearly presented, ready to use, and important in the field of early childhood. I truly gained a clear strategy for structuring my events with far more meaning and involvement after reading this book.
