8.6 Master Teacher Qualifications:

The level of quality found in child care largely depends on the knowledge and skills of the people who work with children.  All children are ready to learn from birth and what caregivers do or do not do can help or harm a child’s success in life.  In order to meet children’s cognitive, social, emotional, and physical needs, caregivers need to have a thorough understanding of child development and be able to implement developmentally appropriate practices.  Their knowledge of Early Learning Guidelines is key to classroom success including lower behavior and guidance problems and increased school readiness.
