When Campus Child Center first opened its doors in 1985, a commitment was made to recruiting a staff whose knowledge base was firmly planted in sound early childhood practice, was driven by a desire to always do what is right for the children, and was dedicated to supporting each other.

UWL student staff

Complementing our full-time staff is our student staff, serving as our teaching assistants. Coming primarily from the fields of Education and Psychology, our student employees work approximately 10 hours per week and are with us for an average of two years.  While they are with us, they have the opportunity to apply the knowledge they are gaining through their coursework in our setting and are able to grow in their skills and abilities as teachers of young children. And more importantly, they provide for us an energy and exuberance that adds flavor and delight to our program - it just wouldn't be the same without them.
