ECE apprenticeship program – Earn while you learn in this innovative program that pairs on-the-job learning with coursework to earn a Child Development Associate (A 9-credit credential), an associate’s or bachelor’s degree. You’ll get on-site job coaching from a supportive supervisor to help you succeed. The benefit of this program is that course content is shorter because some of your learning is completed while you work.

TEACH program – Take classes, get paid release time to complete homework and help with tuition and books through this program that will pay for your CDA, associate’s or bachelor’s degree. While it takes a little longer to finish a degree, you can graduate debt free. You become eligible for funding after one year of employment. Additional program details are available at https://www.pacca.org/teach.php

At The Learning Lamp, we’re committed to creating a brighter future for the children we serve and YOU! Call today 814-262-0732 x301.
