Student Learning Opportunities
Teaching Assistant & Intern Positions…
Teaching assistants, volunteers, and interns have the opportunity to make a significant impact on children’s lives and the quality of care families receive at the AS Child Development Lab. Students from CSU, Chico are a vital part of our program and essential to the day-to-day running of the center.
As a program, the Lab strives to provide a safe, consistent, and secure environment for families while fostering a sense of wonder, curiosity, problem-solving, and fun! While working at the Lab you will have many opportunities to interact with children between the ages of 2 months to 5 years, assist in curriculum setup (and clean-up!), and help maintain our developmentally appropriate environments.
In addition, we feel very strongly about our philosophy of Early Childhood Education and we are proud of our Childhood Programs. Ongoing professional development is a key component of the Teaching Assistant, Volunteer or Intern’s experience at the Lab. During the school year, there are weekly evening meetings that provide us with an opportunity to discuss center philosophy and practices, child development theory, and time to meet and connect with each other. As we know, learning is an ongoing process and we learn by doing; it is important to ask the teachers and coordinators lots of questions. Along with daily observations and feedback, teaching assistants will have a written evaluation done during the first year of employment. Several of our teaching assistants have gone on to work with children of all ages and some are even teachers and staff at the AS Child Development Lab today!
