Student Visitors

We are happy to support current students from local colleges, engaged in the study of Early Childhood Education:

Friday Morning Observations

We offer a 2 hour observation on Friday mornings from 9-11am. Included is a brief tour, introduction to one classroom and time to observe. Please call to schedule your observation.

Directors and Staff are unavailable for interviews during these observations, as their primary duty is to the children and the daily running of the program. Please see our FAQ section to answer typical interview questions you may have for your particular assignment.

There is no cost for this observation.

To request an extended observation, please fill out the Request for Extended Observation form and either fax or email to the site you wish to visit.


Mentoring Educators

Several teachers at The Growing Place serve as California Early Childhood Mentor Teachers and work with practicum students from Santa Monica College and UCLA Extension. If you are currently a practicum student, please contact either site for scheduled information sessions and placement availability.
