Children learn skills and knowledge from their surroundings. I experienced this when I was a housewife and mom of three children. When my third baby was born, my other two children, a toddler and a preschooler, watched me and my husband taking care of the baby all the time. They created their own imaginative play of taking care of their baby doll like parents. This play gave them lots of opportunities to learn about objects, actions, sizes, colors and feelings when talking about the baby with each other. While playing, they learnt to use words such as who, what and where. They acquire the knowledge of feeding, bathing and bedtime sequences. They got the opportunity to learn names of clothing, utensils and body parts. They also learnt to manage zip and buttons of baby’s shirts. This shows that children learn by imitating their enviornment.In my view, the role of an educator is multifaceted. An educator plays various roles, such as a guide, a facilitator and a resource person, in early childcare settings. A key attribute of an educator is to be responsive to children promptly. A competent educator is proactive, warm, responsive and acts as a guide and facilitator for children. An educator creates a positive environment rich with opportunity to learn, explore and develop an encouraging and supportive atmosphere for children.
