Drawing on the authors? combined experiences, Developing and Administering an Early Child Care Center, 5E presents the basic philosophies and interpersonal aspects of directing and administering an early childhood center. The book bases its chapters on major aspects of developing and administering a program for young children, addressing the core issues while giving consideration to the experiences of those in the field. The chapters are written to read and follow with ease, and provide many features and activities that engage readers in active learning.

Dorothy June Sciarra continues to be an active early childhood educator in a diverse variety of situations. She has served as director of the child development laboratory center at the University of Cincinnati, serving children and families from a wide range of backgrounds. She also served as department head with responsibility for early childhood associate, bachelor's, and master's degree programs. She has been involved in several community early childhood efforts including board membership on the University of Cincinnati Early Learning Center. She is active in 4C, a National Association of Child Care Resource and Referral Agency, and has participated tirelessly on many of its Agency training committees. She is a recipient of the 4C Early Childhood Award and was the first recipient of the Ohio Association for the Education of Young Children's Early Childhood Teacher Educator Award. In 2007, 4C again recognized Dr. Sciarra's work by naming the 4C library in her honor. Dr. Sciarra has mentored many early childhood educators, including coauthor Anne Dorsey. Together they also wrote LEADERS AND SUPERVISORS IN CHILD CARE PROGRAMS (Delmar Cengage Learning). In 2010, Dr. Sciarra and Professor Dorsey were honored with the United Way Impact Award for their work in promoting appropriate early childhood education.

Anne G. Dorsey is Professor Emeritus at the University of Cincinnati. She began her ECE career working in the Child Life Department at Cincinnati Children's Hospital. Three sons later, she taught both preschool and college courses while attending graduate school. Locally, Professor Dorsey served on the Committee of Management of YMCA Child Development and continues to serve on the UC Early Learning Center Board, the Promoting Resilient Children Advisory Board, and the SPARK Advisory Board of the Children's Home. She was a member of the NAEYC Ethics Panel, the NAEYC Professional Practice Panel, and the Ohio Association for the Education of Young Children Board. Professor Dorsey visited many colleges and universities as a member of the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education Board of Examiners. As a strong supporter of the National Association of Early Childhood Teacher Educators, she served as secretary, program chair, president, and editor of the Journal of Early Childhood Teacher Education in its very early format, and served as president of the NAECTE Foundation. She received the OAEYC Teacher Education Award and the NAECTE Outstanding Early Childhood Teacher Educator Award.
