As an early years educator who will be asked to plan and supervise child initiated and adult led activities, support children to develop numeracy and language skills, observe each child and shapes their learning experience to reflect their observations and work in partnership with other colleagues, parents and/or carers or other professionals to meet the individual needs of each child.
