Job Description for Early Childhood Educator (ECE)

Children who receive the proper attention early on in life will do better during their educational years. That’s what early childhood educators do; they provide all the important skills a child needs to be successful. Studies have shown that children between ages 3-6 who receive social activities, educational concepts and creative skills are better prepared for their school years. Interaction with parents, caregivers and teachers are the first step to a well-rounded child. Educators who focus on motor skills, writing, reading and emotional development can give a child what they need to succeed. Social relations through play are also important; it’s a chance for children to learn how to share, create relationships and to work well as team. Other roles include make believe, engaging, stimulation and mental development. Early childhood nutrition is another important aspect to creating a healthy lifestyle, teaching children how to take care of themselves through eating well and being clean will last them lifetime. It’s essential for educators to provide a safe environment for young students; this will help them grow with self-confidence. Children love routine, they also are able to follow directions better from those they trust and respect. Teachers play an important role in maintaining these good daily habits. Educators also are able to detect behavioral problems early on so having a relationship with parents at this stage is critical for correcting such issues. Communication between child, teacher and parent can be the single most important thing when it comes to early childhood education. (Copyright 2019 PayScale.com)
