The Children's Center hires approximately 80 students each semester to work as teacher assistants in the preschool classrooms. It is desirable to hire students who have federal work-study allocation, although it is not required. Students work in 4-5 hour shifts. The morning shift is from 7:30 or 8 am until noon. The afternoon shift is from noon to 4:30 or 5 pm. Some evening hours are also available. Most students work at least two shifts per week or between 9-10 hours.
The Children's Center, which is located on campus, has children ranging from 2 through 5 years of age. The Infant and Toddler Program, which is located at 300 E. Hamilton Avenue, has fifteen children from 6 weeks to 2 years.
