Student Employment

The Children's Institute utilizes EMU students as student staff. Our student staff work alongside our professional teaching staff and assist with the care and education of the children in our program. Student staff are responsible for the care of the children in the absence of the professional teaching staff.

Student staff are hired on a semester basis. Students are required to submit a new schedule of availability for each semester on or before the required due date. If a student employee submits a schedule change after the due date, they will not be guaranteed hours. The Children's Institute reserves the right to not ask a student to return for additional semesters.

All student staff are required to go through a complete background screening. This involves names and phone numbers of personal references, a signed Confidentiality Statement, permission to obtain a criminal background clearance, and permission to obtain a child abuse and neglect clearance.
