Can you be a preschool teacher with only a CDA?

Do you really need a college degree to be a preschool teacher? I see that most preschool teacher jobs ask for a CDA. If I were to get a CDA, is that enough alone to be a preschool teacher without an associates or bachelors degree? I’m not sure how it works, or if you need a CDA and a college degree.

    Trained, certified teachers get specialized education that a CDA does not provide. If you just want to work in a preschool as an aide,  a CDA is enough. Some preschools call the aides who work there "teachers", but they are not state certified preschool teachers. If you want to be a qualified preschool teacher, you need the Bachelor's degree, minimum.

    You need to check the qualifications where you live.  Different places, different rules and you give no information where you are.
