The Benefits Teacher getting from ECECM Courses:

A teacher of early childhood education plays an important role in the development of the child. These teachers are responsible for establishing the foundations upon which subsequent learning and progress will take place. It is therefore of utmost importance that these teachers be properly trained and due to this reason, the ECECM course has been established. The future early childhood teacher can get numerous benefits from attending such ECECM courses.

  1. Understanding of the developmental milestones

The childhood development can be thought either in terms of a continuation or in terms of a step-like stage. The continuous view of the development has its own benefits but with regard to teaching, the stage-like view of development is more useful. The stage view assets that children pass through several milestones during their childhood. These milestones are not restricted to physical functions, such as walking, crawling, etc. but also to mental functions, such as, moral development, qualitative changes in things, ability to generate abstract thoughts, etc. The ECECM course helps its students in getting aware of these stages so they can better assist the children in the learning process.

  2. Showing the means of making the class interesting

Children have a tendency to understand the things sooner if they are interesting to them. This fact has not gone unnoticed among the educators and they have repeatedly stressed the importance of designing lessons that capture the interest and attention of students. The ECECM course  helps the teachers in making this endeavor possible by showing them the use of various tools.

  3.Teaching communication and interpersonal skills

The teacher has to interact with the parents of students. The point of this communication will be defeated if the teacher does not have proper communication and interpersonal skills. The teacher has to regularly update the parents regarding the present progress and difficulties that their child is facing so that effective measures can be taken to rectify the present problems. The ECECM course helps the teacher in gaining the necessary communication skills.

  4.Teaching methods for providing hands-on experience

As mentioned in one of the earlier points, learning in children is a function of their interest. One of the thing that can surely generate interest in students is their active participation. The ECECM course trains the teachers in providing hands-on experience of various concepts to the students. An example of the application of this principle can be seen in the usage of different blocks to teach the concept of various geometrical shapes.

  5.Gaining the ability to provide holistic education

A number of aspects in children are in the process of development and due to this, a holistic approach works best for them. It is the responsibility of the teacher to develop the social, mental, physical, and emotional aspects of the child. The ECECM course helps the teacher in bringing about this holistic development in the students.

What are the child benefits from early childhood education:

1. They’ll develop good habits

Daily routines help children feel safe and secure. They’re also a great way to teach children healthy habits, like brushing their teeth or washing their hands. When children know what to expect each day, they’re more likely to be calm, settled and get into good sleeping habits. Over time, they’ll start taking charge of daily activities, like getting dressed and packing their bag.

Childcare is ideal for helping your child get into a good routine. Educators know what skills your child needs to develop and use various techniques to help them develop these skills in a safe, structured environment. This not only prepares your child for kindergarten, but makes family life easier, so you spend less time trying to get your child to cooperate and more time enjoying each other’s company.

 

2. They’ll develop literacy and numeracy skills

Literacy and numeracy skills form a foundation for education, but it’s more than just reading, writing and counting. Children learn literacy skills by listening to stories, talking about pictures and drawing shapes on paper. They learn numeracy skills by singing and playing music, or pouring sand into containers of different sizes.

The literacy and numeracy skills your child learns before they start school have a dramatic impact on their academic success later in life. Research shows that children who attend childcare for three years or more perform much better on year 4 literacy and numeracy tests1, while 18 months of preschool has a greater impact on literacy and numeracy levels at age 11, than all six years of primary school1.

 

3. They’ll develop emotional resilience

Childcare gives your child an opportunity to develop social skills, which helps them form healthy relationships with other people. They’ll learn how to get along with other children, share and take turns, listen to others, communicate their ideas and become independent. As your child gets older, they’ll use these skills to develop friendships that will shape their sense of identity and their future.

Childcare also helps your child develop emotional resilience. Research shows that children who attend childcare at age 2-3 are more likely to be attentive and better able to deal with their emotions when they start school2. Studies have even found that parents benefit from sending their children to childcare, reaping social, emotional and even financial rewards from the relationships they develop with other families at the centre.

 

4. They’ll enjoy a successful future

Did you know the benefits of early childhood education can last a lifetime? A 30-year study in the United States found that adults who had a high-quality early childhood education from 0-5 years were more likely to be continuously employed and graduate from university3.

The skills your child learns in the early years of their life are important for their social, emotional and academic success. In fact, research shows that children who don’t attend preschool are 50% more likely to start school with a developmental vulnerability1.

 

5. They’ll develop a lifelong love of learning

A high quality childcare centre will not only look after your child safely while you work, but also inspire a lifelong love of learning. Access to early childhood education can provide children with social and cognitive experiences that help them become independent and develop a positive attitude to learning. These skills help your child settle into primary school and drive their academic success4.

Whether your child is starting school next year or a few years’ time, consider giving them a head start by sending them to a childcare centre that provides high-quality early childhood education in a fun, caring and supportive environment.
