Ans.1 This highly-specialized program covers both basic and advanced topics regarding childhood learning developments, and is even required of some educators to gain employment in related professions. Here are five reasons to study early childhood education Gain knowledge of developmental milestones I had a 2 year old daughter so I am interested in becoming expert on child development. That’s why I consider this program since it covers developmental milestones beginning from the time a child is born through their fifth year of life. Understand the early learning process An early childhood education degree is a chance to learn about the specific tools that help a young child begin to learn and establish an educational foundation for the rest of their lives. The first five years of a person’s life are pivotal to their long-term success. Learn relationship-building skills This is a unique opportunity to learn about the important relationships between parents and educational professionals as well as the relationships between educators and other community leaders Provide a hands-on learning experience In addition to classroom work, from this program WE get the opportunity to work with students during hands-on learning experiences. Much of the learning process during the first five years takes place during hands-on activities. In addition to spending time within the classroom, these teachers often take field trips to help their students gain life experience. Ans.2 Being an early childhood teacher requires to be willing to wear many hats. As a teacher i am prepared to be flexible. In most cases, my role as an early chiildhood teacher will be very similar to that of a guide. A guide leads others down new paths. A guide walks beside a person on a journey, not in front. A guide also keeps others safe from harm. As an early childhood teacher, i will be challenged to find new experiences to share with children. Guide children, do not lead them, and move in a direction that interests the child.
