Infant Teacher Job Description

An infant teacher is a teacher of young children, typically ages 3 years and younger.

An infant teacher may care for children from babies to toddlers, but an infant teacher’s primary role is to work with infants and toddlers in major ways.

Infants and toddlers’ developmental needs are extremely specific, and the infant teacher is responsible for meeting these needs.

While many infant teachers have backgrounds in early childhood education or child development, this is by no means a requirement.

An infant teacher’s responsibilities include:• Caring for infants and toddlers.

• Providing developmental activities.

• Providing social and emotional support
