PROGRAM PLANNING 2 Program Planning as a Leader In the early childhood environment, an administrator is an educational leader who helps implement high-quality programming for the children within their center. The role of the administrator is very important and impactful because they take on many responsibilities in ensuring the safety and needs of the students and staff can be met daily. Some of the roles of the administrator include modeling appropriate behaviors or actions, making sure protocols and procedures are well documented and followed, teachers and parents are communicating effectively, necessary steps are in place in case of an emergency, all paperwork are completed correctly, offer assistance and resources to parents and teachers, ensure teachers are properly trained, etc. Gadzikowski (2013) states, “for both profit and nonprofit programs, and organization must set clear lines of authority for decision making and accountability in order to function efficiently and effectively.” The main administrator is known as the director who is held accountable for the day to day operations of the facility or center. When it comes to the curriculum the director makes sure that they fit the needs and age of the children it is geared towards for example an infant and pre-k curriculum may have similar topics, but they focus on different areas of learning and development. The director sits with the instructors or coordinator and makes sure that the curriculum is being implemented throughout the school, and if the teachers have any issues or concerns, there should always be room for adjustment.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
