There is strong consensus among early childhood professionals that sound administrative practices in center-based programs help ensure high-quality learning opportunities for young children. Since its publication in 2004, the Program Administration Scale (PAS) has been used across the country to reliably measure and improve center-based leadership and management practices.1 Data from these initiatives have been compiled to provide a window into the administrative practices of a large, national sample of center-based programs.
