Baker, A.C. & Manfredi-Petitt, L. A. (2004) Relationships, the heart of quality care: Creating community among adults in early care settings, , NAEYC
This is a basic text that is commonly used state wide. There is hope for an updated edition, but the information is still relevant for current practices so there is not a need yet for an update. While the first class, CHDV C251, is more about the policies and regulations required of administrators, the focus of CHDV C252 is on the importance of relationships in a center and this is the best text for exploring the qualities that are most important for a center director.
