Many educators and social researchers are placing increased importance on understanding and shaping the early development of a child from birth to age eight. The current educational and social systems of the United States provide educators with the opportunity to systematically interact with a tremendous number of young children at day care centers and preschools. With proper training, professional preschool educators can greatly facilitate socialization and integration into family, social and school environments. Through the use of proper intervention and educational strategies, these professionals can help to solve or prevent problems that may be manifested by children prior to entering school.
