  • Appreciating and supporting the close ties between the child and family;
  • Recognizing that children are best understood in the context of family, culture, and society;
  • Respecting the dignity, worth, and uniqueness of each individual (child, family member, and colleague); and

Career opportunities

This growth is expected to be larger at the elementary (grades 1-5) and middle school (grades 6-8) levels. In addition, reforms, such as universal preschool and all-day kindergarten, will require more preschool and kindergarten teachers as well.
