  1. 1. By: Brittany Terrell
  2. 2. • What? A childcare provider is someone who provides care for children within a facility, home-based, family based center, or church based center.• It is the childcare providers job to ultimately provide an environment in which the parent is able to trust that their child is safe (Mclure, 2011).• Within the childcare program the provider needs to also make sure that the child is learning, thriving, and maintaining healthy habits (Mclure, 2011).• Provider Interview: “ Within my home-based center I focus on making sure that the children have an experience that keeps them safe, but also one that introduces the children to new learning experiences.”-Cheryl Lamotte• Average Yearly Salary: $23,530.00 (Mclure, 2011)
  3. 3. • Head Start teachers are preschool teachers who teach students in national Head Start preschool programs that provide meaningful education to children from low-income households(Weaver, 2010). They strive to facilitate learning to all children and prepare them for later schooling.• To become a Head-Start teacher in Indiana you have to now have or be working towards a Bachelor’s degree. To be an assistant teacher you need to have or be working towards your Associates.• The duties of the lead teacher are to create curriculum that is developmentally appropriate for all the diverse cultures within the classroom (Weaver, 2010). She must maintain relationships not only with the students, but with their parents and co-workers as well. By doing this the teacher is at times expected to conduct parent-teacher meetings, as well as in-home visits.• Head-Start Teacher Interview- “Being a Head-Start teacher is one of the most rewarding fields I could imagine working in. It can be challenging at times, but ultimately building a relationship with the child and their parents is so rewarding. It’s important for anyone wanting to go into Head-Start to know that it’s a lot of work! If you hate paperwork, learn to love it! This job isn’t just reading and coloring, but it’s a great array of behind the scenes work that many don’t see.”- Sherry Barger• Average Yearly Salary: $21,287.00 (Weaver, 2010)
  4. 4. • A pre-school teacher ultimately provides the building blocks or stepping stones for children’s future learning (Job Description for Preschool Teachers, 2010).• A pre-school teacher is typically responsible for teaching children three to five years of age (Job Description for Preschool Teachers, 2010).• A pre-school teacher teaches children using many different learning tools. They can use storytelling, games, songs, finger-plays, computers, blocks, paints, and many other things to teach children math, science, language arts, writing, etc.• It’s not always mandatory for a pre-school teacher to have a college education, but it is becoming more popular for employers to make an associates degree mandatory for an application.• Pre-school teacher interview: “Being a teacher is so much fun! A teacher gets a front-row seat into a child’s mind. You can hear, smell, touch, see, and sometimes taste things you would never imagine possible. I couldn’t imagine a career more rewarding than this one.”• Average Yearly Salary: $23,870.00 (Job Description for Preschool Teachers, 2010)
  5. 5. • A camp coordinator wears many hats and plays many different roles (Bane, 2010). The camp coordinator interacts with counselors, campers and families. He is responsible for promoting and marketing the camp. It is important that a coordinator be good in speaking and be a good social standing.• It is not mandatory for a camp coordinator to have a college education, but they must be eighteen, sometimes twenty one, and have at least one year experience. They must have CPR and First-Aid training (Bane, 2010).• A camp counselor is in charge of making sure all the I’s are dotted and T’s crossed. They must make sure that counselors are where they need to be at all times and with all their children. They need to be able to speak with parents and listen to their concerns. They have to makes sure that supplies are bountiful and in the right area of the camp. They are in charge of checking in the campers and checking the campers out. This job is only for the in-season camp. When camp is out of season the coordinator is in charge of creating new activities, as well as hiring all the needed staff (Bane, 2010).• Average Yearly Salary: $27,500.00 (YMCA Camp)
  6. 6. • A child care director is responsible for promoting and establishing a positive and safe environment for children.• A college degree is not mandatory for someone to become a director, although it looks much better when applying for the position (Child Care Director Job Description, 1999).• It is the director’s job to interview and hire all employee’s. They have to create, regulate, and mandate all childcare policies. One of the hardest parts of this job is maintaining the records. A teacher or caretaker must keep records of every child and then it is the Director’s job to keep it organized and filed in a proper manner.• Average Yearly Salary: $48,000.00 (Child Care Director Job Description, 1999)
