Preschool teachers care for children when parents are away at work or for other reasons that the parent is not around during daytime hours. Preschool teachers tend to the health, safety and nutrition of children. They feed the children breakfast, lunch and snacks, and serve them beverages as well. They also help them go to the bathroom and clean up afterward. In the mornings, they greet children who are dropped off by parents or caregivers, and help them remove outerwear and get settled in for the day’s activities.

Preschool teachers have a large responsibility to teach children. They introduce children to reading, writing, science, creative arts, social studies, and expand on their vocabulary. They teach basic skills such as number recognition, colours, shapes, letter recognition, how to write their names, personal hygiene and how to use proper manners such as please and thank you.
Preschool teachers also have an important responsibility to monitor children’s development. All children are different and develop at different rates and it is important for preschool teachers to know which children are developing and learning at a normal rate and level and which children need a little added help. Preschool teachers can monitor this by watching children carefully and keeping notes on each child’s progress. They also observe and evaluate children’s behaviour, social development and physical health and discuss any problems they see with the parents or guardians of the child.
Meeting with Parents and Prefessionals
Another responsibility of preschool teachers is to meet with other professionals in the education field and with the parents or guardians of the children in their care. Preschool teachers discuss lesson plans and what they are doing daily to help improve their classroom. They also discuss how each child is doing with progress in learning various things. Preschool teachers may also discuss with parents ways to help promote learning and development on their own at home and not just only in the classroom.
