Becoming a Kindergarten teacher obviously requires specific training and education, as looking after children and educating them is such an important role. If you want to teach within the public school system within the United States at the pre-K level, right through to high school grades, then there are some specific requirements. First of all, you must have a bachelor’s degree that has come from a teacher education program.

This bachelor’s degree must have come from a legitimate and regionally-accredited college or University, and state teacher certification is also needed. Hence, to get all of these requirements and certifications, it would take around four years to become eligible to apply for jobs as a Kindergarten teacher. This would be the amount of time that it would take if you were taking a conventional full-time degree at a University or college.

There are options, however, that allow you to study in University part-time. This might be because you already have a job, or you can’t be far away from your children and family all the time, either way, you can choose the degree format you want when it comes to becoming a Kindergarten teacher.

You simply need to decide what’s more important, your current convenience, or the amount of time that it’s going to take you to become a Kindergarten teacher. You can easily get the qualifications you need with some dedication and the right course format for you. Good luck in your endeavours, you’ll make a great teacher if you stick at it!

I know that in most areas just to be a substitute teacher you have to have 60 college credits which is about 2 years or an AA degree...on top of that you must have a Bachelor's degree to apply for a teaching license. So all in all it takes about 4 years.

You have to have a bachelor's degree in early childhood development education. It usually takes four years, people have done it in three. If you just want to be a parapro(someone who helps the teacher) I think all you have to have is a high school diploma but the money is not there they get paid maybe a little more than minimum wage. So I would go for the four year degree. Good Luck

As far as I know, you need about 4 years of studying to work with kids and become a teacher. Actually, I believe it's not enough, but it's still better than nothing at all. But remember that some kindergarten teachers, the ones from high-level daycare centres Brooklyn like, study their whole life and improve their skills to be the best in this sphere, so you can have a great example.
