Early Childhood Educator
Work with children and support their learning and development on a day-to-day basis.
Play a vital role in children’s development
Early Childhood Educators support the emotional, social, and intellectual development of children through educational and recreational activities. Working in a childcare setting, you will develop strong relationships with the children in your care, as well as their parents or guardians, and learn to identify and interpret different behaviours and learning styles amongst the children in your care. Working with children every day, you will supervise and conduct activities designed to further children’s development, and will also be responsible for maintaining a healthy, hygienic, and child-safe environment.
