When they get upset/mad or hurt. I feel bad for them and sometimes it’s hard to convince them that there is a solution for them.

Do children have to go to preschool or headstart?


I believe head start is a state funded program you have to qualify for. If you don't qualify for head start then you should take her to private preschool.

Early childhood education?


There are plenty of places that you can work in the early childhood education field that have health benefits and pay. If you truly have the heart for early childhood education, you should go for it, as there are not many people that truly have the heart for it.

Some places that you can work with benefits:
Public school system-pre-kindergarten teacher
County government-social worker for preschoolers
Self employed-home daycare provider, buy your own health insurance
Pediatrician-work with young children and make a lot of money
Daycare center-many provide health benefits
Good luck to you!

In our school we can't do anymore bottleflip.... is it so dangerous?


The main reason I see why your school administrator prohibits bottle flipping is because of its direct effect to students who cant focus on their studies due to time use in playing such game. Also, it might harm the children when the bottle flipped wrongly.

Co- workers consistently getting me to cover for them during their breaks and never ask anyone else even when I'm busy? What should I do?


Well it is not bad to do some cover ups with your co workers for some instances, if and only if, you do not neglect the duty assigned to you. But if this practice becomes a habit for them, you are in the losing end. This means, that your job is greatly affected specially that your job calls an extra care and full attention to children under your care. Have a talk with your co-workers and explain to them that you cannot afford to look after or take good care to any additional children which are more than assigned to you.

Im a preschool teacher and i feel that I am not creative. I cant even draw. Is there a course for this that I can study?


You don't have to be ultra creative to teach preschool, you do however need to know how to make use of resources. The Internet is filled with resources that will help make your job as a teacher easier.

Some of my favorite websites for preschool crafts, activities, and song lyrics are: Kid Zone, DLTK Kids, and Kididdles for music.

As for classes that you could take, there are a number of them. There are basic early childhood education classes taught by colleges, but they do not really teach creativity.

One of my favorite places to learn creativity is Lakeshore Learning Centers. It's a store that sells teaching materials, classroom materials, etc. They offer free teaching workshops which are fantastic. The workshops generally have a theme, and they teach you everything from songs to crafts, games, and more. You usually get a certificate at the end, and some colleges will count their free workshops as part of your instructional hours. The classes are an hour long, and they even have giveaways where you can win supplies for your classroom. You can learn more about their workshops at:
http://www.lakeshorelearning.com/general_content/store_locations/teacherWorkshops.jsp

One of the best ways to learn hands down is to sit in on other teacher's classrooms. Talk to other teachers, let a parent helper take a day off, and enjoy seeing how another teacher runs their classroom.

Honestly, a lot of the ideas that I used in my classroom came from children's television programs like Barney the Dinosaur. I actually can't draw worth a lick but I learned the basics from a children's television program called Pappyland.

The key to creativity is to find what you are good at and go with it. Some people love to sing, play a musical instrument, and write song lyrics...I can't carry a tune in a bucket. But the thing about preschoolers is they don't care if you sing out of tune. If music isn't your thing maybe art is and you can show kids how to draw, paint, sketch, and so forth. There is also writing, playing with toys like LEGO, making up stories, playing with puppets, make believe, and so many other things. Find what you love to do and incorporate it into your classroom...that will go farther than all the training in the world.

Do you trust men to be preschool or kindergarten teachers or would you be suspicious of them?


I do trust men who are preschool and kindergarten teachers. I think a common misconception is that only women can be teachers of young children. If the guy has a heart for that type of work, all the power to him.

One of the greatest preschool teachers I ever met in all of my years of teaching was this older gentleman who loved working with the 2 year old class. He was this silly old guy that the kids adored, they would cry when their parents came to pick them up because they had so much fun in his class. I had a chance to observe his class a number of times and learned a lot about teaching from him.

Believe it or not, there are people who work in a field they love regardless of the money. No one ever got rich by being a teacher only, as teacher's salaries are terrible, whether you are male or female.

Is it ok to kiss and hug your preschool students?


Actually hugging and kissing children aged 1 to 5 seems normal, but what makes it malicious is how people perceived it. Moreso, if you, as teacher did it to your students. There is nothing wrong with it but the big question is how the parents will accept it. Maybe just hug your students but try avoiding kissing them specially in lips. This is for health consideration too.

Is it normal for a child to cry a lot when they go to daycare?


There is no reason that any parent should have a "suck it up studies are important" attitude when it comes to preschool. While preschool is about learning, it is also about making friends, dealing with separation, and learning how to attend school...something that kids don't learn how to do without practice.

When a child cries at preschool it can mean any number of things:
The child is spoiled and is constantly held by mom, dad, or another family member at home and cannot stand not being held at school

The child does not feel comfortable in the classroom whether because they are uncertain about the teacher, their peers, or the separation from their parents

The child thinks that their parents are abandoning them and will not come back for them, because this is very common thinking for this age group

The child thinks that something is going to happen to them that is bad if mom and/or dad leave because they cannot fathom in their brain dealing with anything without their parents around

When a child cries at preschool, the worst thing that a parent can do is to hang around and cuddle and hold the child. This teaches the child that they can get mom or dad to stay just by crying and every time this scenario is played out, it makes the next separation that much harder. Allowing the child to bring a familiar item from home such as a favorite book, favorite stuffed animal to hold during nap time, or putting a photo of their family in their backpack or lunchbox can help a child get through the day.

In other cases, sometimes when a child cries at preschool it can be a sign of something more serious, like abuse from one of the adults in the preschool. It's important as a parent to volunteer in your child's class from time to time, observe your child's teacher, and report anything strange, unusual, or that makes you uncomfortable immediately. Additionally, you can ask your child about their day at school. Ask them questions that require more than a yes or no answer such as "What did you do at school today" vs "Did you have fun at school today". Ask your child questions like "What didn't you like about school today". Children are brutally honest and if something is going on at your child's school, they are bound to open up about it to you if you know the right questions to ask.

Is it weird if daycare, infant and Preschool teachers hug or kiss their students?


It is not weird for a teacher to hug their student. I do think it is somewhat weird for a teacher to kiss a student. Especially since young children carry so many germs, all you would be doing is spreading the germs around. Hugs are always welcome, not only by scared little students, but also by discouraged teachers having a rough day.
