Teaching in a Child Care Center
SUNY Orange’s Early Childhood Development and Care AAS and Certificate program are most appropriate for individuals who aspire to teach infants, toddlers, and preschoolers in childcare centers. Those who graduate from the Early Childhood Certificate program often enter the workforce as assistant teachers, while those who graduate with the Early Childhood AAS degree often enter the workforce as head teachers. Individuals who plan to own their own childcare center may wish to pursue the Early Childhood AAS degree. All credits earned in the certificate program transfer to the AAS degree program.
