Full-time hours

The first experience of childcare I had was babysitting the kids around my neighborhood. I do not have any experience with infants and babies. But I do know how to change a diaper and that kind of stuff. For school I had to do an externship for nine months so I mostly worked with pre-k children and preschool. I had a little experience with toddlers but not a lot. After my externship ended I applied for the work study job through my school and I worked in a child care center that just had preschool, pre-k and school age children. I was there for 3 months. No openings were currently available after I left.
