Employment of childcare workers is projected to grow 7 percent from 2016 to 2026, about as fast as the average for all occupations.
Parents who work will continue to need the assistance of childcare workers. In addition, the demand for preschools and childcare facilities, and consequently childcare workers, should remain strong because early childhood education is widely recognized as important for a child’s intellectual and emotional development.
However, the increasing cost of childcare and the growth in the number of stay-at-home parents may reduce demand for childcare workers.
