What does professionalism look like in the world of early childhood education? Professionalism is more than a dress code--it is honesty and integrity, the knowledge and skills to be effective educators and administrators, and everything in between. Professionialism is essential in education because not only are educators are required to maintain professional relationships with other staff, children, and families, they are the face of their workplace.
