Early Years Educator Apprenticeship Level 3
Early years educators are highly trained professionals who play a key role in ensuring that young children learn and develop effectively and are kept healthy and safe. They work in a range of settings including day care, children’s centres, pre-schools, reception classes and as childminders.
This role may involve working on their own or supervising others to deliver the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) requirements set by the government for the learning, development and care of children from birth to five years old. With additional experience, an early years educator can become the manager of an early years setting.
