Job Type : Full Time

Description

Summary


Toddler teachers are responsible for the education and care of children, typically between one and three years old. They provide physical care while also tending to the emotional and social development of young children. Toddler teachers usually help implement the Kids 'R' Kids age-appropriate curricula related to developing basic skills and knowledge. They also plan activities for the day and supervise children on the playground or within a care taking setting.

In addition to a background in early childhood education, toddler teachers should be comfortable communicating directly with parents to report on their child’s progress.


Duties


Toddler teachers are friendly and compassionate, with high energy levels, and the ability to maintain the safety of young children. Based on listings we analyzed, these are the core duties typically assigned to toddler teachers:

Educating Young Children

Toddler teachers primarily interact with and instruct children between the ages of 12 and 36 months. Children in this age group are typically learning basic social skills and developing their familiarity with language; toddler teachers develop lesson plans that help teach and reinforce basic skills such as counting and speaking. They also develop plans for activities and constructive playtime that contribute to social and emotional development.

Maintaining Safety

While supervising young children and maintaining classrooms and equipment, toddler teachers make safety a priority, making sure children use equipment and interact safely, as well as disinfecting classroom surfaces and equipment to prevent the spread of germs. Toddler teachers also keep records of accidents and other incidents to help maintain a safe and supportive learning environment for all children.

Parent Communication

Toddler teachers regularly communicate with parents, whether to provide day-to-day reports on classroom activities or to report on a child’s development. In some cases, toddler teachers may meet directly with parents to address concerns or difficulties and work with parents, providing support and resolving ongoing problems. Toddler teachers should be willing to collaborate to develop solutions that are in each child’s best interests.

Monitoring Development

Toddler teachers closely monitor and keep extensive records of students’ intellectual, social, and emotional development. This can involve regular, daily observations, as well as periodic assessments to measure each student’s mastery of life skills and attainment of educational goals. Toddler teachers have extensive knowledge of developmental stages and benchmarks to conduct accurate evaluations and take note of a need to communicate with parents or administrators regarding a child’s progress.

 


Requirements


Toddler teachers are empathetic, outgoing, and energetic to keep up with the daily responsibilities of caring for young children. Generally, we like our teachers to have ECD 101 or higher, CPR and First Aid, and able to pass all state and federal background checks, along with the following skills:

  • Lesson Plan Implementation – toddler teachers develop fun and engaging lessons that are interactive and enjoyable while supporting child development
  • Classroom leadership – toddler teachers successfully take charge in a classroom setting, keeping toddlers engaged during activities and being able to rapidly adjust lesson plans and activities throughout the day
  • Written and verbal communication – the ability to communicate both verbally and in written reports and documents is important for communicating with children and providing information to parents and administrators
  • Observation and evaluation – toddler teachers monitor children’s development, observing and evaluating toddlers to keep track of their progress
  • Compassion and empathy – toddler teachers exercise compassion and empathy while interacting with children and their parents, supporting a safe, healthy learning environment for all children
  • Organization and cleaning – finally, toddler teachers have a high level of organization and cleanliness; they often arrive early or stay late to plan lessons and ensure that the classroom area is clean and sanitized
