People who work with children know that their day consists of many different activities ranging from art projects to outside play. All staff members, including students, should be dressed comfortably, yet appropriately, for participating in diverse activities with children, meeting the public, and supervising the playground in all seasons.
Please use your judgment and dress professionally. Baseball caps or similar hats should not be worn indoors. Shorts are appropriate for warm weather, but please wear shorts that allow you to sit on the floor comfortably and modestly. Be sure to always have appropriate footwear for playground conditions.
Early Childhood students and are expected not to wear jeans. EC students are considered to be student teachers and should dress accordingly. We suggest EC students model their dress after the regular staff. The last Friday of each month has been set aside as “Casual Dress Day” and jeans may be worn on that day, provided they are in good shape and have no holes.
Nametags must be worn at all times when you are in a classroom.
CPR and First Aid
All staff members are CPR and First Aid certified. Students are not responsible to administer First Aid or CPR.
Criminal Record Check
All EC students are required to have a criminal record check. This must be requested within one week of your starting at the Center. The record check is done by the state police at no cost to you, but requires your driver’s license, signature and some personal information. Please see the Program Assistant to arrange the criminal record check.
Unfortunately, there are no parking arrangements at the Center for students. You must park in your regular parking area on campus. If you park on Cummings Street or in the hospital lot across the street from the Center, you will get a parking ticket from the town of Plymouth and may very well have your car towed.
Staff and students should not park in the front driveway, in the Visitor space, or in the Handicapped space (unless you are permitted by law).
