1. Discovery

One of the best parts about working with preschool children is watching them discover new things for the first time in their short lives. Here is just a small list of some of the tasks that many children learn during their preschool years:

  • Tying their shoes
  • Learning their ABCs
  • Counting to 5 or 10
  • Identifying colors

This is just one of the magical aspects of early childhood teaching. You watch as these young children understand their individuality and become slightly more aware of how the world works.

2. Mastery

The challenges of working with students in very different styles are never more evident than in the preschool years. You will need to master various ways to teach to reach every pupil. This is a great way to improve your teaching skills and learn how different children respond to different methods.

3. Prevailing

It may sound counterintuitive, but preschool classes’ best parts are overcoming the many challenges and obstacles you face. You may see it one day when a child struggling has a breakthrough, or another student runs up to you to show you how well they can count to three! These priceless moments make it all worthwhile.

4. Redirecting

Preschoolers require a lot of attention and are not known for their ability to fall off track. You will become a master of redirection and multitasking. Your organizational skills will help you rise above the classroom chaos and learn how to keep to a lesson plan despite all the distractions!

5. Guardian

There is also a safety component related to teaching preschoolers. They do not yet have all of the necessary skills to keep themselves safe, and in addition to teaching them, this is another of your responsibilities. You will need to teach them about safety and common sense and help them become responsible.

6. Surprise!

You will continue to be a part of their lives as they recall their preschool experiences and think fondly of the strong educational foundation that they were given. Don’t be surprised if they come back in a year or more to thank you again for all you did for them during their preschool years.

7. Personal Growth

The skills you gain as a preschool teacher will also help your interpersonal relationships outside of the classroom. You will be able to relate more effectively with your children, extended family, and friends.

8. Gratitude

Being a preschool teacher can be a little bit of a do-over of your own childhood experiences. As you recall your own experiences, you can focus on the best early childhood memories and recreate them for your students. You can also avoid passing on negative experiences to another generation of children.
