Responsibilities and Supervision

Early Childhood students are responsible to any staff member or substitute wearing a black apron and green nametag. Any questions about students’ roles and responsibilities should be directed to a staff member or the Director. It is not the student’s responsibility to handle parent questions or concerns. These should be directed to the teacher in the classroom.

Staff members are expected to involve student classroom aides and Practicum students in the daily routine and activities of the classroom and to establish and communicate clear expectations for them.  Practicum students should be regarded as part of the teaching team.

All staff members, student classroom aides, and Practicum students are expected to wear name tags at all times.
