Hello Alex: Awesome that you want to work with children. My son is a resident Pediatrician and volunteered as a Sunday School Teacher of approximately 15 first graders while in high school. 

You could also work as a pre school Teacher. They work with children in great numbers. There are many other opportunities out there were you could work with children. Be mindful that some professions may require a background check, drug test, etc. Hope this helps.

Best of Luck to You!

Hi! This is a great question with a few different concentrations. For example, you could go into a position in the medical field in a children specific hospital be it nurse, doctor, physical therapist that specializes in child rehab, child therapist who does things like speech or mental issues or you could go under your own practice and become a pediatrician. It would be completely up to you in terms of how much medical training you wanted to go to school for or whether or not you wanted to do in terms of do you want to have private practice or hospital.

Good Luck!
