The Stanislaus State Child Development Center (CDC) offers exciting internship opportunities working with infants, toddlers, and preschool-age children. There are classroom teaching internships working with children 2 months to 5 years old and an administrative internship working with CDC management. Eligibility for an internship is based on coursework (12 or more units) and experience (various levels). There are several advantages to becoming an intern:

  • Earn upper-division units in CDEV for attendance in a once a week internship course
  • Receive experience to qualify you for a California Child Development Permit
  • Receive important professional training to add to your resume and skill base including:
    • working effectively with young children
    • using developmentally appropriate practices
    • designing and implementing an early childhood curriculum
    • valuable classroom management techniques
    • working with adults and families

Don't have units in Child Development? Ask the CDC faculty or your advisor about fieldwork.

To apply for a CDC internship, submit both a CDC Job Application with upcoming class schedule and unofficial transcripts (from Stanislaus and/or community college) to the CDC ( Internships will be finalized before the start of each semester. If you have questions or need further information, please call the Child Development Center at (209) 667-3036.
