Hi, my name is Veronica Baragas with mywigglesandgiggles.com and I'd like to share with you a few daycare jobs for teens. Now in order for you to start working in a daycare center, you have to be at least 16 years old. Now that qualifies you to be an aid or an assistant teacher. This is something I would highly recommend if you're definitely considering maybe a childcare career, starting at 16 as an aid would be a tremendous start to your childcare career. By the time you turn 18, you're actually able to have a class of your own so you become a daycare teacher. Let's say you started at 16 and by the time you're 18 you have a few years of experience and hopefully you've stayed with a daycare center because once you find a good place you don't want to leave. So let's say you've been at the daycare center for a few years and by the time you're 18 you can become a teacher and by that time if you've kind of considered maybe a career in the childcare field, you might want to start taking some classes and whatnot, kind of help your career along. It isn't until the age of 21 that you can actually become like a director of some sort. But as for teen wise, at 16 you can become an assistant or a teacher's aid up until 19 years old. So definitely look into your options and see if it's the right career path for you, but the earlier you start, the better.
