3 Benefits Childcare Educators Provide Better Than Parents
Updated: Oct 4, 2021
An inquiry we receive often at our Tampines childcare centres Genesis Childcare 1989 and Nurture Infant House is what can our trained staff provide for the child that can’t be replicated at home?
Of course, parental care is the most essential, but there are aspects of raising a child that external resources have proven to be better at.
Here are just three of the primary benefits that professional childcare workers can give better than parents:
AN EXPERIENCE OF MULTITUDES
Is this your first child raising experience? Rightfully, you’re looking up on resources to equip you better, slightly aware that you’re going to be learning together with your child on this whole journey.
You’re looking forward to all the cuddly goodness and joy, but you’re also unsure if you’re prepared on how best to handle many coming challenges, like the common behavioural problems for one.
Or maybe, it’s not your first child. “Easy! I’ve got this! I’ve been through this before!”. Says no parent, except maybe the parents of imaginary fairy children, hmm! You may have been through it all before, once, or twice -- that’s an outstanding achievement! So let’s take it in that childcare educators have gotten a whole variance of the experience numerous times!
At our kindergarten and playgroup in Tampines, we put effort in making sure we hire the best qualified staff. All the reading up that you’re doing is only the basic prerequisite to becoming a childcare educator at our infant care centres in Tampines! Our staff has not only gone through all the tedious discovery, but have already put it into practise every single day they interact with children from every background.
A PROFESSIONAL IN PLAY
When taking care of children is a career, there is inevitably a requirement for professionalism, even amongst all the bubbles, unicorns and choo-choo trains. The childcare industry is one line of work where it’s all about play, yet the play has to be well thought out to be productive.
This is where it differs greatly from all the chortling relatives, friends and classmates you’ve not seen in a decade coming over to pinch your kid’s puffy cheeks when adorable, or spank the behinds when naughty.
In many fields of work (such as medical for one), personal relationships to a client, patient or subject is often not ideal for the best decisions and progress to be made, or even hazardous in the long run.
No matter how effective one is at parenting, the intimate relationship with one's own child makes it hard to choose the right course of actions for every situation. For example, dealing with crying often triggers a lot of emotional stress on parents even when they know how to handle it, just because it’s their child. This reduces the parents’ performances.
Our childcare educators are adept in balancing their strong empathy, amicable connection and personability with a keen sense of fostering correct growth for children.
THE PASSION FOR COMPASSION
We get it, you are of course even more passionate towards your own child, and maybe even other children as well. But liking kids with a passion does not equate to having the passion and motivation to dedicate your life to care and make a difference in the lives of the children.
The childcare educator’s job does not entail just the human interaction aspects that require certain strong qualities. Their daily duties include much observation on how the children are developing from and responding to the planned activities. A lot of effort is dedicated to workloads such as preparing materials and resources, or researching and organizing the play-based curriculum itself. Phew.
If you thought raising a child was physically and emotionally exhausting, imagine being in charge of a kinetic classroom filled with kids! Well, that’s just another day in the lives of the trained professionals.
Maybe now let’s re-examine this passion again, hehe, for it is only with this passion that enables childcare educators to provide the best environment for a child to learn and grow in.
