About the Program
In collaboration with Early Care & Education and Student & School Success at ESD 112, the CTE Job Shadowing Program offers an opportunity for high school students in SW Washington to experience a day in the life of an early learning professional. Students will be paired with a mentor who they will shadow throughout the work day. Students will be able to ask questions, interact with children and gain hands on experience in this career path.
Early learning providers have submitted interest to be mentors across SW Washington in various ECE positions that include: center director, family home child care teacher/owner, assistant teacher, lead teacher and family support specialist. The goal is to welcome interested students and introduce them to the field in a meaningful way in an effort to develop the ECE educator workforce. Students can shadow multiple ECE roles, visit different child care settings, learn about employment options and higher education opportunities.
