Why be an Educator
As Ignite Minds demonstrates, Early childhood Educators are absolutely awesome people. Not only do they practice relating to children and refining their teaching skills, they bring about generational change and make a real difference.
In Australia, we believe in a 'fair go' and this means everything in early childhood. Being part of this lucky country means that your child's ability to become a doctor, a musician, artist or a successful entrepreneur (or whatever they choose!) is influenced but not predetermined by the post code or social demographics they live in. Early Childhood Educators assist young children develop enquiry and lay the building blocks to give them the confidence to be the very best they can be.
Early childhood educators are important influencers in our society. Research suggests that our response to learning is set in the fist 3 years of our life. Early childhood educators make a difference! We develop foundation skills that will scaffold a child into adulthood.
Whilst the media has been full of stories about dodgy training providers they have not told the full story. The fact is that many RTO's provide 'free training' and as the saying goes 'you get what you pay for'!
Early childhood educators are amazing people, they work hard and are committed to making a difference in the lives of children and families.
Educators become a 'third parent' for those of us lucky enough to have one. With more and more families forced to have 2 incomes it is vital to our society that we have well educated, emotionally secure and trusted educators able to support children and parents during the busy phase early childhood brings to any family.
Fortunately for you, we understand childcare in modern Australia and are committed to providing you with the highest quality education in the country.
