I really enjoy the aspect that you can gain your early childhood education degree at home thru Penn Foster. They materials are great, they provide plenty of information and the curriculum that Penn Foster sets up is great. Being a mother of two children and working as a nanny getting my degree at home is very convenent for me. The draw back I have is the slow time it takes for Penn Foster to ship out materials. I have been done with the first semester for three months now and I'm waiting to get all the grades on my proctors before I can even start my next semester. So far I have to take two over which is fine, but they are slow in remailing information to my proctor so I can move on with the process and get my tests completed so I can complete my next semester in a timely fashion. Other then that I truely am enjoying the learning experience thru Penn Foster College.
