Early childhood teacher profile

Having timely, reliable and comparable international information is essential to help countries improve their ECEC services and systems. For over 15 years, the OECD has been conducting policy analysis and gathering new data on ECEC. With around 45 charts and data for the 35 OECD countries and a number of partner countries, the early childhood teacher profile also includes a great deal of new material.

Your aim is to motivate children and imaginatively use resources to help them learn. You’ll provide a safe and secure environment for them to develop their social and communication skills, while recording observations and summarising their achievements. You should be focused on the development of the child to prepare them for a successful transition to primary school. Roles in this bracket will often include supervisory or management duties.

Income figures are intended as a guide only. Nurseries can be open from 7. 30pm, so it’s likely you’ll need to cover shifts within that period. A typical school day runs from 9am to 3. 30pm, but if you’re working in a school you’ll start earlier than 9am to prepare and set up activities for the day.

Extra hours may be required for staff meetings, inspections and parent consultations. Part-time, temporary work and career break opportunities are available. The paperwork involved in the job can often mean some evening and weekend work at home. Self-employment or freelance work is sometimes possible as a supply teacher or as a freelance early years consultant.
