    Are interested in the various ways children learn
    Have a desire to strengthen individuals, families and your community
    Have natural leadership skills and thrive on new challenges every day

    As larger numbers of children live in families where all parents work, more early childhood professionals are needed to educate and care for these children.  Families also need people to help them find care and assistance paying for this care.  In addition , our society has become more concerned about how this care affects young children and what quality child care really means.  These concerns have led to an increase in resources to support improving the quality of child care and have simultaneously increased employment opportunities.   The salary for these job opportunities varies by educational level and degrees earned, by experience in the profession and by the type of program.  You may also want to consider opening  a Family Child Care Business in your home.  Here are some resources to build your network and learn more about job opportunities in this profession.
