The principal duties of the Teacher include: conducting focused observations of children, developing action plans, carrying out activities on a daily basis and evaluating the effectiveness of child development activities, ensuring the safety and well-being of the children, maintaining regular communication with parents, and contributing to the effective operation of the overall early care and education center.
