Preschool Teacher

Early Childhood, A.A.S.

See Details

Children learn mainly through play and interactive activities. Teachers capitalize on children’s play to further language and vocabulary development, improve social skills, and introduce scientific and mathematical concepts. Thus, a less structured approach, including small-group lessons, one-on-one instruction, and learning through creative activities is adopted to teach children. The process of helping children grow, learn, and gain new skills is very rewarding. New activities, challenges and flexibility make each day important. Early childhood education prepares one both physically and emotionally to work constantly with children at their level while attending to their interests and needs.
