Online Child Day Care Degrees

Who Says Nap Time Is Only For Babies?

Whether it's being able to watch Disney movies whenever you want or indulging in snack and quiet time, working with children is both rewarding and fun! Here are some of the reasons working in child care can be a one-in-a-lifetime opportunity:

•    You can have a positive influence on both the children you are working with and the families of those children, thus creating a more symbiotic, compassionate community.
•    You can be a part of a child's mental and social development, which research shows are very important during a child's formative years.

But if you are considering a career in child day care, you should know nearly all of the 50 states require training from programs specializing in early childhood education or child development, a number of hours working with children, and credentialing (Child Development Associate). The US Bureau Labor Statistics reports child care workers held about 1.3 million jobs in 2004, and 17% of all child care workers were found in child day care services. High replacement needs should create good job opportunities for child care workers, especially those with the right training and degree.
 
The US Department of Health and Human Services reports there are nearly 1400 two or four year institutions available for you to earn your degree. These programs are put together special for those considering careers in child day care. Those with degrees in early childhood education and child development will surely outshine the competition. If you love working with children, explore which training and programs will best help you achieve your dream today.
