About Daycare Careers

The daycare field is exciting and growing rapidly as more and more parents enter the workforce and require someone to take care of their children. Jobs in daycare range from professional nannies to preschool teachers and offers the worker the opportunity to have a very rewarding and fulfilling job caring for children. Working in daycare can earn you a yearly salary ranging from $30,000 to $50,000 per year.

What to Expect

Child care gives the worker the opportunity to have a flexible schedule with very enjoyable day-to-day activities. Rather than working an office job and sitting in a cubicle all day, the child care worker gets to take care of children all day, playing with them, helping them with homework, and taking them to and from activities. Many companies require a daycare worker to have at least a 2-year or 4-year degree in a children’s studies field, such as child psychology or education. Be ready for very unpredictable and exhausting but very satisfying work each and every day!
