Hi, my name is Veronica Baragas with and I'd like to share with you about daycare teacher certification. Now most places as a daycare teacher only require you to have minimum of a high school diploma or a GED equivalent and most places just require that. Now if you wanted to become maybe more of a director or a lead teacher a lot of places will require you to have at least six units of college courses in some type of early childhood education or teaching. So unless you're planning on becoming a directory or whatnot, which would require a CDA which is your Child Development Associates, most teachers only have minimum requirements of high school diploma or a GED equivalent and one to two years of childcare experience. It's definitely going to depend on where you're applying, what state you're in and the qualifications of each individual center. So as long as you have a high school diploma and a few years of experience under your belt, I think you have a pretty good chance of finding a teacher job somewhere in your city.
