Effective Planning and Administration of Early Education Programs

Effective Planning and Administration of Early Education Programs is a training manual that provides the information necessary for early childhood education professionals to implement a high quality educational program for young children (birth through age twelve). As professional development, the course is approved for program administrators and early childhood educators pursuant to the University of Georgia’s training approval contract with Bright from the Start: Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning and Georgia Department of Education’s Office of Professional Learning. This course fulfills the forty hour training requirement for program administrators and teachers of early care and education and school-age care programs. It also meets the competency goals and indicators set forth in Rules and Regulations for Day Care Centers 290-2-2-09. (2014) Participants demonstrate an application of effective school leadership behaviors and practices that support proficiency in all of the Georgia Department of Education’s School Keys of Excellence. Course assessments utilize the Georgia Leader Keys Performance Appraisal System leading to individual professional growth goals. The manual accompanies the online or classroom face-to-face training. Any owner, board member, administrative staff member (e.g. Principal, Director, Afterschool coordinator, Extended Care Supervisor, summer enrichment Program Coordinator, Bookkeeper, Administrative Director, Athletic Program Director, and so forth), or program supervisor that makes decisions needs to complete the course. Upon completion participants receive a Georgia program administration credential.
