Career of the Week- Daycare Instructor/Director

Taking care of children can be one of the most rewarding experiences one can have. The early childhood years are some of the most important ones in a person's development. Having qualified individuals to take care of and instruct infants and toddlers can be essential to lifelong development.

Working at a Daycare can be a way to live out this meaningful career path. Typical work includes caring for, nurturing, and instructing children too young for the educational system. While a degree is not required, a Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education Foundations can be a great place to start. This also opens up the door to managing or owning a Daycare.
