As an early childhood teacher, you help young children develop emotional, social and intellectual skills they will use for a lifetime. You witness the direct impact your teaching has on children as young as six weeks old, all the way through to eight years old in childcare centres, kindergartens and primary schools. Becoming a teacher is not just a career path, it’s a special calling.
Make a real difference
You will be able to reap the rewards of your hard work every single day as you watch your young students learn, grow and develop under your guidance.
After their parents, you are among the most influential people in their lives. Although this is a great responsibility, it also brings great satisfaction in watching the smallest of accomplishments throughout their learning journey.
It takes creativity to engage a large group of young children. You will need different learning styles and imagination to make the learning fun! As an early childhood teacher, you are not just teaching one subject you will be imparting important values, teaching students the fundamentals of reading, writing and counting, to discern between colours and even dance or sing! You have the potential to inspire your classroom to be life-long learners by sparking excitement and desire for learning in their early lives!
