Validador – Apoyar, cultivar y reconocer el comportamiento de los niños de una manera que no interrumpa o altere la actividad del niño.

Jugador – Jugar y participar con los niños en una asociación receptiva.

Extender – Desafiar, elaborar, ampliar y provocar el pensamiento y las ideas de los niños.

Iniciador de problemas – Plantear y utilizar problemas, conflictos y desafíos apropiados para cuestionar e involucrar el pensamiento de los niños.

Modelo de conducta – Mostrar los comportamientos y actitudes esperados en el juego y el aprendizaje.

Evaluador – Evaluar los puntos fuertes, las habilidades, los intereses y las necesidades de desarrollo de los niños, tanto a nivel individual como de grupo.

Gerente – Preparar el escenario para un juego significativo.

Es esencial tener en cuenta que estos roles no son estáticos, donde un día se decide ser observador y otro gerente. Por el contrario, los roles cambian a lo largo del día, creando un equilibrio.

Daily Jobs are an excellent way to build a community in your program and develop a sense of purpose in children. This Town square created resource guides in understanding the importance of jobs, how they can be beneficial in the program’s daily schedule, and how to best utilize them for your specific children.

Daily jobs

After selecting the jobs that best fit your program, one way to create a job chart is to use a baking sheet and magnets. Take pictures or have children draw the jobs, then print or have children write their name (if possible laminate them). Attach a magnet to the names and the jobs. Alternatively, you can use a felt board and velcro. Make sure that the Job chart is visible daily for children, and they can have access to it if they need to look at their job for the day.
