Teaching, Young Children

Teachers of young children may work in preschools, daycares or child care facilities, and they lay the foundation for kids' learning. Read on to explore your education and career options in this field.

Inside Teaching Young Children

There are two major environments where young children are taught. Daycare or child care centers take care of children from infancy to school age, and often have classes for each age level, teaching the young students appropriate lessons that will prepare them for preschool. As children grow older, they will enter preschool, where they are taught foundations to prepare them for kindergarten. To learn more about how to enter this career field, take a look at the following Study.com resources.

Education Information

Educational requirements vary between states and venues for these two professions. While there are usually no degree requirements for daycare or child care teachers, there are sometimes certification or associate degree requirements for preschool teachers. Of course, earning a degree or certification in early childhood education or early child care could be helpful for either job, especially in areas with a great deal of competition.
