NIU Campus Child Care offers two types of employment opportunities; full-time professional staff and part-time student workers. We employ 16 teachers who have either an associate’s or bachelor’s degree in early childhood education or a closely related field. Openings for these positions will be indicated on the web site as they become available.
We also employ approximately 50 part-time NIU students each semester who serve as Teacher Aide’s within our program. Hiring is typically done 4-6 weeks prior to each semester. Applications may be submitted at any time, but students must include a class schedule to receive consideration for an interview. Although we prefer to hire students who are majoring in early childhood education, child development, or elementary education, employment is open to all students. Preference for employment is also given to students who are eligible for Work Study.
