Student workers serve as teacher aides at Campus Child Care. Teacher aides help support the early childhood classroom as well as the professional staff with whom they work. The primary responsibility of a student worker is direct interaction and supervision of the children, ages 2 months through 5-years-old. Students also help support the curriculum plans of the professional staff as well as help to support the basic maintenance and routines of the classroom. The student worker is part of a teaching team including a full-time Teacher and Head Teacher in each classroom.
Students can access job applications from the center or from the web site. The best time to hand in an application is during the last 3-4 weeks of each semester for employment in the following semester. Interviewing and hiring is done prior to the start of each semester because staffing needs to be in place once school resumes. Students are selected for interviews based on the following priorities: Child Development or Early Childhood major, having work study funds, hours available to work, and experience with young children. Students tend to work 10-20 hours per week and the work schedule is created around the student's school schedule.
