The success of a child’s development can largely be attributed to the success or failure of their early educators. Teachers are responsible for understanding the importance of a healthy, respectful, supportive, and challenging environment. Understanding the needs of each individual child is vital, as is championing a collaborative partnership between families, communities, and schools.
