What is the role of an Early Childhood Teacher?

At Guardian Childcare, we have a strong team of educators and like to highlight and celebrate Teachers who excel at their work.

What are the 4 qualities that Early Childhood Teachers should have?

Working as an Early Childhood Teacher can be a challenging and highly rewarding career. If you’ve been considering a career as an Early Childhood Teacher, here are some essential qualities you’ll need to be successful.


Children sometimes struggle to communicate their thoughts or feelings, and Early Childhood Teachers need to be effective communicators. Our Educators will also need to discuss children’s learning goals with families and hold meetings with Centre Managers and other Educators.


As a skilled Early Childhood Teacher, you’ll need to rely on your creativity to make some experience more interesting to children. You may need to think on your feet if there is an interruption to the day and fill that time with something that engages the children.


Children will learn at different levels, some understanding concepts quickly and others requiring additional time. Being patient and allowing children to learn at their own pace is key to providing a welcoming and functional learning environment.


Children love to play and learn, and spaces need to be organised for safe and structured learning. With good room management, you’ll be a more effective Teacher and your children will be less distracted and prepared for their daily activities.
