| Career Opportunities
Early childhood education is a rapidly growing field. Increasing public awareness of the importance of quality early childhood education, research on the importance of early brain development, and changes in family structure and employment patterns have all increased the demand for child development services. Professionally educated teachers, teachers' aides, caregivers, administrators and related staff are in demand. Career choices include working directly with children in infant and toddler programs, preschools, or school-age, before and after-school programs, or working indirectly on behalf of children in administrative positions. Students may also transfer to a four-year college to obtain a B.A. and teaching credentials or pursue a career in a related field.
