Early Childhood Educator Job Description

The early years of childhood are largely regarded as the most important in a child’s development.

Therefore, early childhood educators play a critical role in the development of children and in society at large.

Early Childhood Educators (ECE’s) work with young children and their families to support the development of a strong social, emotional, and intellectual foundation.

ECE’s work in a variety of settings, such as family child care, child care centers, Head Start, and out-of-school programs.

Early Childhood Educators spend a lot of time with the children in their care.

They assist with care routines, organizing play time, and providing opportunities to explore the world around them.

ECE’s also serve as an advocate for children.
