I am excited to launch this new discussion on the challenges that directors face in early childhood programs. We'll be using Debbie LeeKeenan and Iris Chin Ponte's book From Survive to Thrive: A Director's Guide for Leading an Early Childhood Program as a guide, but all questions and comments related to the topic are welcome on this thread.
These questions will also be the basis of the interview of Debbie and Iris that will be moderated by NAEYC.
I am going to start off with the first question:
What have you found to be the most successful way to keep a healthy budget?
Those are helpful suggestions Robert and James your question about elevator pitch was a good one. Interested in seeing how the authors answer it.
As a director I had resistance when I brought in trainers on diversity subjects. No one explicitly said no, but I felt resistance. How do we as directors of small centers break that barrier?
