Abstract: 'Leading and Managing Early Childhood Settings: Inspiring people, places and practices' examines what it means to be a leader, manager and administrator across the early childhood education field. The first section of the book introduces readers to a number of core concepts, including self-understanding through professional reflection and consideration of people's beliefs and values. These chapters explore the challenges of working within various early childhood settings and the importance of connecting and communicating with families and the broader community. The second section considers four key roles that early childhood professionals often undertake - team stakeholder, policy designer, pedagogy creator and rights advocate. This book challenges readers to make links across research, theories and everyday practices by thinking, reflecting, sharing with others and writing stories. The storytelling approach guides readers through the chapters and explores the themes of embodiment and sustainability. Written in an engaging and dynamic style, 'Leading and Managing Early Childhood Settings' is an invaluable resource for pre- and in-service educators alike.
