I was looking into the early care & education program at my college.
I decided that I would one day like to work with children. But, it seems that an aas degree in Early Care & Education leans more towards working in a daycare. (My friend is a toddler teacher,and she got the job with out a degree).
I don’t necessarily see myself doing just daycare, in fact I think I would even prefer older children ages 5-8. Also, instead of having a classroom full of toddlers, I think I would prefer instead working with children perhaps small groups, therapy, early intervention programs, one on one, counseling or able to work in a school setting, even if it’s as an administrator. I suppose my question is if I were to get a early care & education degree, would that just limit my opportunities to strictly day care/pre-k or can I do other things with such aas degree or even a bachelors.
