To ensure school readiness and help prepare children for successful participation in work and civic life, our nation has committed to providing a comprehensive and coordinated system of early learning and development. As more community-based programs provide publicly funded preschool, the need for well-qualified early childhood administrators has greatly increased. To create fiscally sound early childhood programs with learning environments that nurture and challenge young children and with work environments that develop, support, and retain skilled teachers, program directors capable of strong leadership are essential.
