Effective Early Childhood Educators Play a Critical Role in the Development of Children
Good Early Childhood Education Practitioners can have an enormous impact on the education of young children. When successful, they can lay the groundwork for a child’s ongoing education at a critical time when they are learning emotional and social skills that enable them to interact and form partnerships with parents, teachers and peers.
In order to achieve this, effective early childhood educators need to be able to combine a deep understanding of broader educational theory and practice with theoretical and practical experience of education in the early childhood context specifically.
