You need to decide what kind of child care services are you willing to perform. Family child care professionals are those who work out of their homes and take care of small group children. In contrast, private child care professionals are those who prefer to work in their own house and look after the kids from numerous families.
To become an authorise child care professional, you should decide an appropriate program for yourself. To achieve this, you should enquire with the state’s licensing department about how much training would be required to achieve that status. You should try to obtain early childhood education as much as possible as this is considered mandatory by many employers and it will help you in getting hired. The associate degree is a two years full study course that covers the topics such as sociology, nutrition and child psychology.
You should acquire a certificate from Council for Professional Recognition and the National Child care Association. They will evaluate your education level and experience and a professional credential will be handed over to you, if found appropriate.
