Why I Want to Be a Early Childhood Education Teacher?
Most of my life I have been surrounded by children especially my cousins, nieces and nephews. I have chosen to go into this field because I want to be one of those early childhood teachers that get young children ready for an important part of life. Having little cousins to watch grow up and see them grow in their early education has shown me that I want to be part of that.

The early childhood is the most vital time for learning, therefore observations, learning, planning and evaluation are an important part of the curriculum for children’s learning and within early childhood centers and teaching practices. These all work in correlation to support learning for children.

The purpose of education is not to fill the minds of children with facts. It is to teach them to think for themselves. Young children need a warm and inviting atmosphere to learn. Children must have their basic needs met before learning can take place. Safety, nutrition, and shelter are a few needs that need to be provided.

Children need to be encouraged to express themselves through verbal communication, text/pictures, play, and through art. Group activities teach young children how to live, work and play together. They need both independent and teamwork skills to become a well-rounded person. Early childhood teachers are often the one person spending the majority of the time with the children they are teaching.
