Early Childcare Assistant
What is a Early Childcare Assistant?
As an Early Childcare Assistant, you would assist and participate in the day to day operations of a childcare centre. You would help to provide a nurturing, caring environment in which young children can thrive and offer a professional approach while observing and guiding children throughout the day. Children look to the Early Childcare Assistant to provide support and supervision as they play and experience things together. Working with children, you would encourage socialization and enhance children’s self esteem during daily activities.
Beyond child interaction, Early Childcare Assistants would assist with record keeping, attend staff meetings to discuss progress and problems with children and maintain day care equipment.
