Leading for Our Profession

Early Childhood Education For A New Era

presents a leadership manifesto. Contending that we are at a field-defining moment, it argues that early childhood education as a field of practice should: (1) assume responsibility for the competent practice of its practitioners and for facilitating positive results for children and their learning;(2) formally organize as a profession to realize consistency in practice across sites and program types; and (3) develop field-wide leadership, thereby diminishing reliance on public policy for defining the field’s purpose and structure – a dependency that has fostered programmatic and systemic fragmentation, uneven performance, and weak leadership capacity as a field of practice.
