Educational leaders need to be knowledgeable about different early childhood educational models and understand the benefits and challenges of each approach to learning.
For this assignment, imagine that you are the director of an early childhood education center, and you have decided to open a new location. Select a geographical area or district you would like to serve, and research the demographics of the surrounding community.
Create a 10-15 slide digital presentation for prospective teachers who may consider working at your new center.
Specifically, discuss the following different school models:
- Project Approach
- Head Start
- High Scope
- Reggio Emilia
In your discussion, explain the theoretical foundation of each model, and how each model supports the development of the whole child.
Of the models listed, choose one model you would use within your early childhood education center. In your presentation, explain why you selected the model, how the model aligns with child-centered beliefs, and why it is a good choice for the demographics of the community you selected.
Include a title slide, references slide, and speaker’s notes in your digital presentation.
Support your findings with 3-5 scholarly references.
