A Childhood Educator Is Becoming Commonplace In Teacher Training

School boards and individual teachers are seeking out new ways to improve and maintain their own learning process. Teachers with a passion for their career are routinely discovering innovative ways to brush up on skills, and to develop new methods for delivering information. Teachers know that children have a huge capacity for retaining knowledge, and that every child has their own unique way of grasping the information delivered in the classroom. A childhood educator is an expert in childhood development and maybe custom papers writing. Although more commonly known for teaching children, leading childhood educators are also training teachers, to share their research and valuable teaching methods with professionals in the childhood development field.

A childhood educator teaching childcare providers, will focus on developing a child academically, socially, emotionally and physically throughout pivotal phases in children's developmental years. A childhood educator conducting workshops and presentations aimed at educational institutions, can discuss any topic ranging from learning through play, to healthy eating habits, and age appropriate fitness.

In addition to protecting and caring for young children, teachers are more interested in child psychology than ever before. Countless hours of modern scientific research has shown that children, who are taught with methods appropriate to their brain development, will be more independent, better socialized and emotionally stable adults. A child consultant for teachers can share expertise in the form of workshops, presentations and through published books and presentations.

A Childhood Educator Implements Programs into Schools

A childhood educator's role goes behind education for educators. A childhood educator will also design and implement programs into educational institutions. Better programming paves the road to a student's future success. As a childcare provider, teachers and parents set the stage for future generations.

Program development can include services such as:

• Policy Manual Development

• Handbook Development

• Concept Development

Research is a large component to any leader in the childhood development industry. An expert on developmentally appropriate learning for children and adults makes a great childhood educator for childcare providers. It is well advised to seek out a childhood educator with experience teaching and working with a variety of ethnic backgrounds. In Canada, a childhood educator with research and field work experience teaching aboriginal students is an asset. Canada has a rich diversity of culture, and being able to properly tie learning with home and family-life, is a technique for including parents into their child's education.

In the field of childhood development, Dr. Ingrid Crowther is a well known expert childhood consultant in Canada. She has designed and implemented programs across the country for elementary schools, to universities. Her experience and knowledge in early childhood development, have taken her career to various levels of accomplishments, including published books for children and adults. She is the executive director of Lifelong Learn, a company dedicated to teaching childhood educators and parents through workshops, seminars, presentations and books.

For a sample of past presentations, visit Lifelong Learn for downloads. Presentations such as, "Developmentally Appropriate Fitness," and "Learning Retention," have been popular downloads, and excellent resources to childcare providers.
