What course do I need to do to become an Early Childhood Teacher?
An Early Childhood Teacher works with children up to the age of 5 or 6, engaging students in stimulating developmental activities and promoting their physical, mental and emotional well-being. They provide structure and routine, help children develop basic language, numeracy and social skills and prepare them for the transition into primary school.
By planning daily learning programs, Early Childhood Teachers facilitate the growth and learning of young children, using structured play, socialisation and other activities like music, art, creativity and stories. They gauge and monitor each child’s progress, discussing their development with parents or caregivers and carry out other administrative duties such as writing reports and ordering educational supplies.
