Teaching is the obvious answer, but few people realize that there are an abundance of opportunities that involve working with children outside the field of education. It also depends on what age group you have in mind. Remember that "children" applies to a broad range of ages, i.e. up to 18.
Fields/positions which come to mind include:
Director of outreach program
Operating/Running a day care
Owner of babysitting business
Dentistry and orthodontics
Juvenile truancy officers

If you go into nonprofit options, the options are endless. You can work with struggling children, help children with disabilities and diseases...the list is endless, what do you want to do with children? Why do you want to work with children?
I think I answered this question last night. What I said was that you can become a teacher. That's really the most obvious answer. You can also become a pediatrician or a speech pathologist that works with kids. If you are a designer, you can become a kid toy designer; most of the time your job might not involve working with kids, but you will have to test your toys with them. You could also be a child therapist.
You can also volunteer to teach abroad; there are many NGO's in underdeveloped countries that need passionate and talented teachers.
