What Does an Early Childhood Educator Do?

Jul 15, 2021 2:42:11 PM

If you research the role of an early childhood educator, you'll find job descriptions that sound a lot like this: 

Early childhood educators organize and lead activities to promote the intellectual, social, emotional, and physical development of children under 12.

They help kids adjust to the world outside their family circle and get ready for the next stage of structured learning.

Now, that certainly sounds accurate - but what exactly does it mean? What does an early childhood educator (ECE) actually do all day?

The truth is an ECE's responsibilities can vary depending on the work environment. For instance, teaching toddlers in preschool is very different from assisting a licensed teacher in a third-grade classroom.

But, most ECEs work in daycares and preschools, so that's what we're focusing on in this post.

We provide a breakdown of a typical day for an early childhood educator so you'll know what to expect on the job.
