This text has been substantially revised to include a broader range of knowledge and practice necessary for the challenging role of leading and managing children’s education and care services. The provision of quality early childhood education and care requires knowledgeable leaders and managers who possess a range of twenty-first-century workplace skills necessary to guide the organisation through a process of continuous improvement to meet the increasing demands of service delivery.

To address learning needs this text now includes knowledge related not only to the Children’s Services training package but also to the Business Services training package. In particular, knowledge content related to a number of competencies from the Diploma of Leadership and Management has been added.

In practical terms The Business of Child Care can be used as a textbook for students completing their initial children’s services diploma training and for experienced educators seeking to develop leadership and management skills by undertaking a Diploma of Leadership and Management.

Additional content includes emotional intelligence, risk management as a continuous improvement tool; workplace wellbeing, the need for which became very evident with the stress of the pandemic; critical thinking skills – essential for evaluating service delivery and engaging in self-reflection. Communication has been closely examined so that having difficult conversations, influencing and persuading others, supporting conflict resolution, and guiding meetings to ensure that all team members are supported to have a voice in the organisation, are addressed.
