3. The relationships you build. Helping children feel secure so that they can freely access fun activities, which help them to learn in their preferred learning style. Children's emotional wellbeing is built on secure relationships.

OUR TEAM ARE
People who work in childcare are our heroes!
It sounds such an amazing job.
Childcare professionals are paid to play and work in a fun environment making a positive difference for young children. They are fuelled by the satisfaction that comes from seeing the children grow and develop, happily engaged in the work of childhood; play. They get to build relationships and trust with the children and their parents.
But there is so much more to the role. The responsibility that childcare professionals take on when looking after children is enormous. They make sure that the children are safe and secure, both physically and emotionally. They have a mountain of observations, assessments, next steps developments and teachable moments to record and plan for.
There is a breadth of knowledge and understanding of child development needed to be an effective Early Years Educator. Childcare professionals have often spent years studying for childcare qualifications to give them the ability to provide the children with developmentally appropriate play based learning opportunities.
It takes real commitment to be an effective Ealy Years Educator.
