Hello fellow FCS educator!


For those of you who teach Principles of Human Services you know just how fun this class is! I love that we get to expose our students to a variety of careers that strive to serve and educate those in our community. With this resource, students will be able to investigate career options that fall within the child care spectrum.


Careers Include:


  • Child Care Worker (center-based, in-home, preschool program, head start)
  • Nanny & Au Pair
  • Preschool & Pre-K Teacher
  • Teacher Assistant
  • Program Director
  • Parent Educator


For my Texas teachers, this covers TEK 5 (F):  identify employment and entrepreneurial opportunities and preparation requirements in the areas of personal interest. If you have access to textbooks, I highly recommend using Goodheart-Willcox's Principles of Human Services by Sharleen L. Kato.


If you don't have a textbook for this class or would rather go digital, the following website works perfectly with this investigation:


Child Care Careers


For an extension activity, you can group your students and have them create infographics based on the investigation information.
