Teaching English for Early Childhood Prospects

•  Employment of preschool teachers is estimated to grow 10% from 2016 to 2026, faster than the average for all occupations. This growth is expected to result from an increase in childcare and preschool enrollment, as well as continued demand for special education services

•  The number of preschool-aged children and elementary school- aged children is expected to increase. Therefore, the demand for teacher assistants who work directly with students
will increase. In addition, there will be continued demand for special education services and, in return, demand for teacher assistants who work with these students.
