I have B.A. in Early Childhood, but no teaching cert. and I'm considering doing my Master's in Early Childhood because that is what I love, but I'm concerned that the degree will not have much value. The program lists the following career opportunities: Child and family advocacy Public policy Child development Parent/family education Professional development Higher education Working with young children Program management -but I'm afraid that either A) I can't really getthat job with just this degree (Higher Education, for example), or B) I could get that job with just my Bachelor's anyway. My dream is to open my own child care center, but it's very difficult where I live, especially without the money to put out or a space in my home to get started, so I'd like a degree that would give me some good back up choices, but I don't really want to teach. What do you think?
