As with almost any field, the options are endless for child care professionals if they have the proper education
Hoboken, NJ (PRWEB) August 2, 2007 -
Every day, millions of parents leave their children with a child care provider. It's a profession that is always in demand as parents depend on outside help to make sure their children are protected, nurtured and educated while they are at work. In the United States alone, almost three million children go to a child care center regularly. To help current and aspiring child care professionals get the skills they need and advance in their profession, eLearners.com recently launched the 'Mini-Guide' to Online Child Care Training.
The site answers the following questions:
What does a child care worker do?
How can child care professionals advance their careers?
Can I get child care training online?
How do online child care training programs work?
Will I ever have to go to a campus?
What are the benefits of online learning?
How much will an online child care certification cost?
According to the U.S. Department of Labor, child care workers held roughly 1.3 million jobs in 2004 with about one in three child care workers self-employed. Child care training provides professionals with the knowledge to operate within and manage a day care facility and gives parents and guardians peace of mind knowing their children are cared for by educated professionals.
Through online courses, child care providers can develop a range of skills and abilities that can be used in other industries and related professions. After getting child care training, many students continue with their education and work toward a college degree in Early Childhood Education. Students can earn an early childhood education degree online at all levels (associate's, bachelor's, master's, and doctorate). Early Childhood Education degree holders can go on to work as teacher's aides; pre-school or elementary school teachers; day care facility directors, and more.
"As with almost any field, the options are endless for child care professionals if they have the proper education," said Andrew Gansler, CEO of eLearners.com. "eLearners.com connects people with accredited programs so their advancement goals can come true."
