I suggest the first question should be what career area interests you. For example, teachers work with children, as do a number of medical specialties, as do many others, including day-care workers, child photographers and more. Once you consider career interests, I believe the appropriate courses will recommend themselves. In an effort to assist your pursuit, I located this website that gives an overview of many potential careers that work with children. None may fit your interests, but seeing the list may help in opening the opportunities that await you in working with children. I admire your interest in doing this.
Here is a source that I discovered in my research:
