Qualitative and quantitative research provide evidence that leadership can impact student learning and outcomes; however, research examining leadership models in early childhood education settings is scant and in its infancy. One promising leadership model that aligns seemingly naturally with the underpinnings and core constructs in early childhood education is that of pedagogical leadership. Pedagogical leaders shift the focus from administrative/managerial roles to those essential in supporting and focusing on teaching and learning. This chapter explores leadership in educational settings and, specifically, early childhood education. It also defines pedagogical leadership, provides information regarding key constructs within pedagogical leadership, and concludes with best practices for effective pedagogical leaders within an early childhood setting.
