Co-op Float Positions
As part of TCC's staffing pattern, TCC utilizes the Northeastern co-op program to fill one to three float teacher positions for a 6 month paid placement. The float is used to support the staff and maintain ratios in each of the classrooms when a teacher is absent and for additional assistance in the classrooms.
TCC accepts student interns from a variety of colleges in the Greater Boston area. Each semester, TCC attempts to place at least one intern in each of our 5 classrooms, from Toddler One through Preschool Two. The programs at each college vary in focus and expectations. TCC is always willing to accept interns whether it is an observation or full-time internship. Intern hours will vary depending on school requirements. The Head Teacher in the classroom is responsible for supervising the intern.
Students interested in doing an internship at TCC should contact the Center to set up an appointment for a tour and a brief orientation of the program. Interns will also have an opportunity to meet the Head Teacher and observe in the classroom in which they would like to do their internship.
TCC is always in need of full-time teacher assistants and paid co-op personnel to work during the summer. We recruit college level students who have had some experience working with children. If interested in working full-time over the summer please call, fax, or e-mail us to set up an interview.
TCC is always in need of part-time, occasional, or long-term substitute teachers to work at the Center to cover when teachers are absent due to illness, personal, professional, or vacation time. Applicants interested in applying for a substitute teacher position should call, fax, or e-mail the Center. The substitute teacher may post their availability (depending on school or work schedule) to be on call as needed in the Center. A brief orientation will be provided prior to the substitute being hired.
