This is another great title that specifically focuses on early years. It is both clearly structured and well written. The text is very accessible.

This is an essential part of the reading list for any leadership modules. Aubrey creates a step by step process of what it takes to develop effective leadership skills. The layout enables students to dip in and out to support their own professional development and academic writing skills. I am a particular fan of how she includes the reflection-in-action chapter which is an excellent support for foundation degree students.
Relevant and useful text to support practioners in developing Leadership and Management skills.
An informative book giving a well-balanced and realistic view of leadership within the Early Years.
A really interesting and useful text that is easy to read, Very suitable for undergraduates with limited experience of leading and managing others.
An excellent book to study the roles of early childhood leaders and the characteristics of different models of leadership in early childhood.
