UWEC Student Employment

The Children's Nature Academy hires approximately 120 students each semester to work as teacher assistants in the infant/toddler, two-year and preschool classrooms. It is desirable to hire students who have federal work-study allocation. Students work in 4-5 hour shifts. The morning shift is from 7:00-9:00am until noon. The afternoon shift is from noon until 4:30- 5:30 pm. Some evening hours are also available. Most students work at least two shifts per week or between 9-11 hours.

The Children's Nature Academy, which is located a few miles from campus, at 1190 Priory Rd., has children ranging from 6 weeks through 5 years of age.  There are also school-age summer camps available to children ages 6-12.

There is a shuttle that runs during the school year at peak times throughout the day, Monday-Friday.  The pick up/drop off locations are in front of Kjer Theatre on lower campus (corner of Park Ave. and Garfield) and right in front of our building.  If you are interested  the  shuttle times,  please  contact  our office at 715/836-2178.
