My major was early childhood education. I went to a community college , university, and graduate school. Each class had me to do some type of teaching experience at a school or daycare. For example, if the course was on health and safety of children then I could go to a daycare to observe health and safety procedures. Health and safety procedures would consist of things like ensuring that the children washed their hands when they come in the classroom, before and after eating and using the restroom. I've found that daycares can be a lot stricter than a school due to the fact that the children are younger and the Department of Human Services requirements. With that being said, Kindergarten is very similar to a daycare because it falls under early childhood education. Early Childhood Education in Tennessee is Pre-K through 3rd grade.

When you go to college, observations and internships will be a requirement for teaching. It will give you a lot of experience. When I did my internship, I had to work at an elementary school for a whole semester (from August to December). I observed the teacher for about six weeks then I took over her class from that point on. That teacher observed me and gave me feedback.

Often colleges and universities will request that you take part in classroom experiences that may or may not be in the grade level you would like to teach in. Our local community college requires 25 field hours in a PK-12classroom or daycare setting for every 3 credit hour college class you take. At the university level when you are finishing your Bachelors degree for teaching they will have you complete 1-4 semesters of student teaching in a classroom working alongside a teacher. The number of semesters required and number of hours to be at the school depend on the college or university you are attending.

Working at a summer camp would also be great experience. It teaches you organizational skills, leadership, how to resolve conflicts, and gives you great experience working with children of all ages. Theres a lot to learn from it.

I never taught at the primary level. However I think if you had chance to intern at a day school or any school that has kindergarten program that be good. Even a church Sunday school would be start. See if even liked this age group.
