I am currently attending college to get my Bachelors, not in education though. It's going to take me quite a bit of time because I pay my tuition out of pocket. So I became a nanny because I really love it, but I only really intend to do it for the next 7-8 years while I'm working on my degree.
Seeing as how I'm going to be a nanny for a while, I figured that it would be good to invest in this as well. I am CPR/First Aid Certified, trained in Universal Precautions, and have passed the INA Basic Skills Assessment. I know it's not much, so I was wondering what other nannies have done? I was thinking about getting an ECE Certificate, but I'm wondering if there are other certifications/training courses that I could take without having to add more college classes.
I also obviously wouldn't want to pay a hefty college-sized fee...so I'm just seeing what's out there.
What do you guys think?
