Create Lesson Plans:
- Early childhood educators design their own lesson and classroom instruction plans based on the state-approved and school-approved curriculum.
Lead Daily Activities:
- Early childhood educators lead daily social, learning, and physical activities for all children in their assigned classes.
- Early childhood educators are responsible for the overall health and welfare of the children in their classroom, which requires diligent monitoring of all children during learning times, meal times, restroom breaks, and nap times.
Encourage and Engage Children:
- As an early childhood educator, it is necessary to keep all children active and engaged while they are in the classroom.
Keep Classroom Clean and Stimulating:
- Janitorial services perform most of the heavy classroom cleaning, but the early childhood educator is ultimately responsible for keeping the classroom clean, organized, and stimulating for children.
Assess In-Class and Homework Assignments:
- Early childhood educators must assess all work submitted by students and provide progress reports to parents detailing their child’s success in completing classroom work.
