Preschool teachers stand as a notable role model in a child’s early life. Early childhood educators support children during a pivotal time of academic development and personal growth in and out of the classroom. Preschool is sometimes a child’s first time away from their parents for an extended period of time. It can be a scary endeavor for children; however, as a positive and calm preschool teacher, you can help alleviate some of the stress and anxiety often associated with this milestone. Preschool is also often the first time children engage and socialize with other children. As a teacher, you facilitate relationship building exercises that help children bridge social gaps to make new friends and establish social skills.
