Continuing our commitment to supporting the education of early childhood professionals, the Early Childhood Resource Center is proud to host student interns who are enrolled in associate's or bachelor's degree programs. Internships are created based on the needs of the student as well as current needs of the Center. Hours are flexible to fit into school or work schedules. Internships are paid and unpaid positions that typically offer school credit.

  • Creative Activities
    • Help organize themed activities for children 
    • Research and showcase ideascapes on our production lab bulletin boards
