JVS Students Will Work in Head Start Classrooms

posted 12/5/19 -- Next month, LCCAA Head Start classrooms will again welcome students from Lorain County Joint Vocational School to gain hands-on experience in early childhood education.

The long-time partnership between LCCAA and JVS allows high school juniors in the Early Childhood Program to see how a Head Start room operates, interact with the children, observe experienced teachers, and learn classroom management strategies and curriculum implementation.

The 23 students will be place in LCCAA directly operated sites (Cascade, Firelands, Griswold, Hopkins-Locke, LaGrange and Wellington) from January through March. Their JVS instructor will also visit to observe the high schoolers as they present a lesson to Head Start students.

The group visited Griswold Head Start in November for a tour and orientation to the program.
