The Role of a Nursery Teacher on Kids Early Learning in Dubai

A Nursery teacher plays an important role in developing a child’s personality, knowledge and growth. For an Aga Khan Early Learning Centre (AKELC) teacher, one of the greatest joys is to be part of the early learning experiences of a young children as they discover and make meaning of the world around them.

Role of a Nursery Teacher

One of the roles of the teachers is to be a learner alongside children. Teachers and children act as partners in play. If you were to observe at our Centre, you would watch as Teachers listen, observe and document children’s work and ideas. This process helps teachers to understand children’s learning and possibilities for further teaching. The teachers also pay attention to the child’s interests and skills and plans activities to support these.

Teacher-Child Interactions

Teacher-child interactions are respectful and supportive. Our teachers use an active listening approach to help children reason and to solve problems and work through conflicts.

Teachers set up the classroom environment to be a safe, welcoming and comfortable environment where children can thrive in a creative play-based setting. The physical layout and arrangement of materials promote choice and discovery. The children have the opportunity to use many open-ended materials in order to discover and demonstrate what they know, understand, wonder about, question, feel and imagine. Our materials reflect the diversity and the positive aspects of children’s homes and community cultures.

Parent-Teacher Communication

Communication between teachers and parents takes place daily either through the parent diary, an email, phone call or during drop off and pick up times. Appointments are made for longer conversations. Teachers partner with parents to ensure that everything is done in the best interest of the child. Teachers work with each other, with parents and children to form a community of learners.
