This article uses autoethnography as the method of inquiry to explore definitions and contexts of early childhood education leadership. This affords a new space between the subjective and objective, the autobiographical and the cultural, to write in a way that lies between literature and the social sciences. Against a backcloth of scientific and…

Cumming, Tamara; Wong, Sandie – Contemporary Issues in Early Childhood, 2019
Both the concept of well-being and the work of early childhood educators are complex.

This article begins to…
