- Quality customer service including responding to customer questions e.g. from parents or school teachers.
- Complete roll call at the start of each class.

- Facilitate learning and exploration by asking the student questions that will guide them and help them discover the solution themselves rather than giving prescriptive directions
- Ensure safety of children in your care. Remain with children e.g. in case of late pick up.
