The complexity of leading in early years services requires practitioners who are confident in their own role and able to work creatively with large multi agency teams. This book offers advice, support and most importantly encouragement to those who are taking on these challenging but immensely rewarding roles' - Bernadette Duffy, Thomas Coram Early Childhood Centre.'This erudite, scholarly and comprehensive new work draws on a qualitative study to reflect the voices of early childhood practitioners from a number of countries whose words enrich and give life to the text.
