PDC #3: Approaches to Adult-Child Relationships in the Child Care Setting (Staff Supervision, Coaching and Development)

ED POL 302

The quality of a program for children is dependent upon the knowledge and performance of the staff working directly with children. The staff, in turn, depends on compelling professional development programs as well as effective coaching and supervision.

Develop excellent learning environments through effective and intentional mentoring, coaching, supervision and community-building among your staff with this third course of four in the Program Development Credential series. Examine communication and conflict resolution, and articulate your goals and expectations in order to turn teachers and families into advocates.
