Early childhood educators are integral components to a child’s life. They are interacting with the children in their care for many hours each day and often witness a child’s growth and development in many areas. This is why it is crucial for caregivers to have the tools to support and encourage a child’s positive self-esteem and to help them develop a healthy self-concept. This course will discuss the importance of self-esteem, as well as how to recognize low self-esteem, and understand the reasons behind it, as well as how educators can avoid biased expectations and be positive role models.
