The A. Sophie Rogers School for Early Learning offers a training ground for students across The Ohio State University campus, providing internships for undergraduate students and clinical field experiences for graduate students and medical students.
The Schoenbaum Internship Program provides Education and Human Ecology undergraduate students an award of up to $2,550 per semester while interning at the School for Early Learning.
Selected interns will:
- work 20 hours per week in shifts between the hours of 8 a.m. and 6 p.m.
- assist in educating children from culturally and economically diverse backgrounds
- work with young children in infant/toddler classrooms (ages 6 weeks to 3 years) and preschool classrooms (ages 3, 4 and 5 years)
- have the opportunity to expand skills with young children in classroom management, early childhood screenings and assessments, family relationships, and curriculum development and implementation
Students may participate in observing the school’s classrooms as part of their coursework. Review our observation guidelines for more information.
There are also rich opportunities to engage in research within the School for Early Learning. The school supports research focused on early learning, child health and development including physical activity and nutrition, and family/community.
Research projects may represent an array of disciplines, epistemologies, and methodologies. This could range from studying how teachers support children’s alphabet learning to the importance of parents’ aspirations for their children to the role of nutrition and physical activity in healthy child development.
