Abstract: 
An exploratory study was conducted which aimed to find out Singapore’s early childhood educators’ views on creative teaching and educator roles. Two research questions were posed: What are early childhood educators’ views on creative teaching? What are their views on educator roles? A total of 35 early childhood educators participated in the study. They filled out a questionnaire, which comprised two measures: Perceived competencies of creative teaching and perceived educator roles. The perceived competencies of creative teaching scale comprised 49 items and the perceived educator roles scale comprised 54 items. For the two measures, a 9-Likert scale was used with indicators: 1 being “extremely not competent” or “extremely not important”, 9 being “extremely competent” or “extremely important”. Using SPSS, reliability, factor, correlational, and cluster analyses were performed on data collected from the questionnaire. The findings suggested that early childhood educators in the study perceived relatively highly their competencies in creative teaching and they highly rated their multiple teacher roles for creative teaching.
