In 1987, daycare centers were growing and played a prominent role for single and dual-working parents. Early childcare education was entrusted to facilities as working parents needed more than a babysitter. The Administrator’s Handbook for Early Child Care Education was written to help daycare programs run smoothly. Marilyn Segal was a notable figure in early childhood development and education.
This comprehensive handbook, written for administrators, focused on staffing and the quality of childcare centers. The efficiency in hiring the best staff to meet children’s needs is focused on in this manual. This guide gives administrators tips from the 1980s on organization, licensing, and admission standards.
The Administrator’s Handbook for Early Child Care Education also discusses financial and cost analysis aspects. Along with budgeting, facility maintenance, record keeping, and child abuse reporting guidelines, this handbook was written to uphold high standards in centers. Other factors this book looks into regarding an admin’s role include housing and space arrangement and maintaining high morale. The clear layout with thorough and valuable tips was a necessity for any administrator in early child care education.
