    Amy, i know your post is a little "old" by posting board standards, but thought I'd reply anyway. Hopefully, you're still checking for responses.
    If you are interested in working in a daycare center, a certified degree (4 yrs bachelors)may not be necessary. A lot of places look only for "some college" with 6 hours in Early Childhood Education(ECE). Our local community college offers a certificate program for daycare certification. You may want to check to see if something similar is offered by you. If you're still curious about what kind of educational background these employers are looking for, ask them. They can tell you what they're looking for. Just tell them that you are interested in getting into the field and need to make some education decisions. When I called, the daycare chain by me offered to hire me while I was going to school & help pay for my tuition as I worked towards my degree.
    Hope this helped and didn't just add to your confusion!
