Child Care Workers

Advancement Prospects

As child care workers gain experience, they receive salary increases and promotions to such positions as assistant director or preschool teacher. With additional experience and education, such as a degree in early childhood development, they may be able to advance into an administrative position (e.g., director of a center). Some experienced child care workers with advanced degrees become directors of Head Start programs and other government programs. If a child care worker has a head for business, he or she may choose to open a child-care facility. Some child care workers also decide to pursue a degree in education and become certified to teach kindergarten or elementary school.
