Job opportunities include but are certainly not limited to Pre K teacher, Child Development Center educator or director. Such opportunities are found in private centers, church and community settings. Students are certified to work in Head Start Programs throughout the country. Entrepreneurs in this area may want to organize their own programs for this age group in their communities.
