Considering a Career of Early Childhood Education?

Is a career in childcare for you? What about becoming a Montessori guide? Whether you call it early childhood education, daycare, childcare, preschool, or a Montessori Children’s House, working with young children is incredibly rewarding and valuable.

Upon the institution of National Teacher’s Day in 1953, Eleanor Roosevelt said, “The teachers are, of course, among the most important people in our nation. Day in and day out they are at work preparing the future citizens of the U.S. . . . I have always felt that we did not give an honorable enough place in our communities to the teachers. Next to parents they are the most important people in our communities.”

If you love being around children, find joy in their natural curiosity and enthusiastic discoveries, appreciate their ingenuous observations, enjoy nurturing and caring for their developmental needs; if you like doing something new and staying active every day; if you are eager to see children grow and be successful, an early childhood career may be just the right path for you!

While working with young children has its challenges (as do all career paths), we think it is one of the most rewarding careers available. What a privilege to have a positive impact on the youngest members in our community and to make an investment in tomorrow’s leaders and world changers in their formative years! As Dr. Maria Montessori said, “Within the child lies the fate of the future!”

We firmly believe that those who work in early childhood are not simply “daycare” workers or “child care” workers, but are educators and professionals, and the work that they do is incalculable in value!
