Online Early Childhood Education Degrees and Careers

Earning your early childhood education degree allows you to help children reach their full potential. From the moment a child is born, they are learning about the world around them. Early childhood educators have the opportunity to foster that learning at an early age.

There are numerous opportunities to earn online degrees in early childhood education. Certificates in early childhood education are sometimes suitable, though many employers expect applicants to have an associate's degree or bachelor's degree in the field. For states that set aside special funding for pre-kindergarten programs, a firm degree requirement could be in place.

Education and Career Opportunities in Early Childhood Education

The requirements for child care workers vary from state to state. Some states allow a person to begin working with children before they complete high school, while other states require completion of accredited degree programs in early childhood education and a current license. For those who must have a license, a background check and current immunizations are usually required.

What can an early childhood educator expect in terms of income? According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, child care workers made an average of $20,940 in 2009. Those who taught preschool children made an average of $27,450 in 2009.
