Full-time hours

I am currently finishing up my early childhood education degree (all classes are online so there will be no scheduling conflicts). Since working as a nanny, however, I have realized that working in smaller groups or one-on-one with children is where my heart is which is why I love what I do so much. I have learned that I do not need a classroom to be a teacher. I have worked as a nanny for about 3 years total, though not consecutively. I have cared for children aged 6 months to 7 years. I also completed a practicum in a kindergarten class about 4 years ago and loved every moment of it.
