I was a preschool teacher before I got pregnant! (I had a related degree–Early Childhood Education, which is child dev with a whole bunch of classes about writing curriculum)

@FutureMrsT1221:  I don’t have my degree in child development, but I worked with a lot of people who did. They were preschool teachers, teacher’s aides/assistants, and I worked in a program that offered families home visits- health, education, and social services during weekly home visits.

@FutureMrsT1221:  I would look into OT. It consistenly ranks very high in terms of job satisfaction and ranking.

 

You will not make close to the money you do in any of the other jobs listed.

The non-profit I work at has a “Child Development and Family Services Director” and that seems like a perfect fit for your BA. The director has a lot of responsibilites but I think her biggest responsibilty is overseeing the Head Start program. Seems pretty rewarding. 🙂

I have a degree in Human Development (basically the same as child development, but with more focus on entire lifespan). I went on to get my MA in counseling. A lot of the girls in my program went into cccupational therapy or education.
