The educator is present to ensure the health and safety of the children. Their main task is to support and accompany the children in their development. The educator observes the children in their group daily, in order to better understand their abilities, needs, interests, and challenges. Observations will allow the educator to better organize the environment and material, plan suitable activities and intervene adequately with everyone. The educators continuous training will give them the theoretical and practical knowledge necessary to understand the level of development of each child and to adapt their interventions.
