Written for practitioners who must supervise staff from a wide variety of educational and cultural backgrounds, this pioneering volume was the first to provide guidelines and practical suggestions for staff training and development in early childhood settings. Now this resource has been completely updated to reflect the many notable changes that have taken place in the early childhood field. The new Second Edition includes special attention to issues of diversity; a number of promising new staff development and evaluation practices; greater emphasis on career ladders and lattices; a focus on the importance of collaboration among staff, and between supervisors and staff members; relevant NAEYC accreditation criteria at the end of several chapters; and a new chapter on "Caring Knowing and Imagining".
