This book investigates what it means to be an early childhood professional and discusses the knowledge, skills and traits exemplary early childhood educators must possess.

Written for those entering the field or striving to grow within the profession, the book helps readers understand the nature of professions, what it means to behave in a professional way, and where they stand in their own professional journey. Chapters are devoted to moral and technical competence and explain what the terms profession and professional mean. Complete with self-assessments and first-hand accounts, readers learn what it means to be an educator who embodies the highest standards of professionalism in their work with children, families and colleagues.
