Over the last forty years, the estimated number of international schools worldwide has increased from fewer than 300 to 6400 in 2012. This explosion is a response to the needs of a world in which borders are being traversed with ever greater ease and children increasingly need to be prepared for the global opportunities that await them. In this book, international school specialists reflect on where the movement has come from, how it stands and where developments are heading, offering insightful observations on these unique institutions. This is a comprehensive resource for students, researchers and professionals with an interest in the future of education in a globalized world.

Every early care and education program deserves a qualified and competent supervisor. This pioneering text continues to address the special needs of administrators and staff to help them expand and improve their supervisory skills. The first to provide guidelines and practical suggestions for staff training and development in early childhood settings, this classic volume is still the best choice for those supervising staff from a wide variety of educational and cultural backgrounds. In this twentieth anniversary edition, updated to reflect the many changes that have taken place in the field, you’ll find: A new chapter on career ladders/lattices. A new chapter on staff selection, recruitment, and orientation. Promising staff development and evaluation practices that emphasize staff learning and reflection. Continued attention to issues of diversity. Relevant NAEYC accreditation criteria at the end of selected chapters. Emphasis on the development of supervisors, as well as staff members. A focus on collaborative relationships and dialogue.

“This book captures the unique aspects of supervision in the early childhood setting like no other.”
—Susan Washburn, Education Development Center, Inc., Newton, MA
