Guiding Principles for the New Early Childhood Professional
Building on Strength and Competence
With growing evidence about the critical period of birth to age 5 for child development and learning, the imperative to professionalise the early childhood education workforce has never been greater. In this follow-up to The New Early Childhood Professional: A Step-by-Step Guide to Overcoming Goliath, the authors share lessons learned from their work with thousands of practitioners. They focus on four Guiding Principles for leading change:
- the need to Respect diverse opinions
- the need to seek Equity
- the need to acknowledge the field’s Strengths
- the need to do the hard work to enhance Competence.
With a strategic emphasis on building professional communities, strengthening professional capital and working together to craft solutions, Guiding Principles for the New Early Childhood Professional presents a clearer vision of a unified future in early childhood care and education.
