“I’m an Educator, not a babysitter.”

One of the greatest insults for parents, teachers and early childhood educators is to suggest early learning is merely ‘babysitting’.
“I’m an Educator, not a babysitter.” “I’m an Educator, not a babysitter.”

 

 

Research tells us that the crucial building blocks for emotional, social and cognitive skills are put in place in the first five years of a child’s life. We also know that outside of parents, educators are one of the most influential factors in a child’s learning outcomes and overall future wellbeing.

Early childhood educators and teachers invest years of training and formal education to gain their qualifications. Dedicating themselves to upskilling and improving their knowledge to provide the best possible education and care for children and their families.

They also invest emotionally. Teaching children important life lessons. Sharing some of their most significant early milestones and arming them with life-long skills.

Early childhood education is a profession and should be valued. Our wonderful Only About Children Educators explain the important role they play in young lives.
