The job skills needed to be an effective daycare teacher include the abilities to keep accurate records and to communicate with parents and administrators, and the interpersonal skills to network with other teachers. Teachers must have a clear understanding of the curriculum standards for preschool classes, and the knowledge and skills to plan lessons to teach students the core content to meet the learning benchmarks listed in the state and federal education standards. These standards require teachers to understand the basics of motor development, the different ways children learn, early language and literacy development, and how the child's brain develops. These skills also help the plan lessons and activities to assist students in understanding and retaining the general knowledge necessary to learn in advanced grades.
