This introductory skill set give a reflective insight to the role of educators in early childhood education and care who work in regulated children’s education and care services in Australia.

They may work independently or under the guidance of others, though in some contexts that guidance may not be on-site.
Early childhood educators work in long day care centres, family day care, pre-schools or kindergartens.
