And they influence young minds in ways that are difficult to imagine. If you love children and want to make a difference in little lives—and if you’re looking for ways to have an impact—then you’ll make a great childcare administrator!

About this Program
Being a child care administrator is a great career choice because there are so many job options. You can work at home or away from home. You can work full time or part-time and make this a side gig for extra income. You can work for others in child care centers, preschools, or any early childhood education (ECE) facility. And you can work for yourself. (29% of child care administrators are self employed.) You can operate a childcare facility of your own, be an elite nanny or anything in between.
