The Professional Philosophy Statement should be no more than two pages in length. Identify your personal values and beliefs around teaching and learning: How do you believe young children learn? Based on this, explain what you believe your role is as their teacher/caregiver.
Beyond teaching and learning, reflect and write about what you believe are the other important aspects of your role in the lives of children and families.
