Substitutes come to the Children’s Center to support each program as an important set of hands when an Early Childhood Educator is absent. We invite subs to come weekly in order to build relationships with one or two programs at the Center rather than float through all the age groups. When a sub builds a relationship with the children and the team, there is a sense of predictable and consistent support. Subs are asked to help with teacher-work activities, wash dishes, sit with playing children, and participate in the outside program. Because of the play-based and nature-based focus in our programs, subs will be outside and inside while they observe and attend to children’s play.

COVID-19 Considerations for Children’s Center: Bowdoin College is committed to keeping our team members and the children in our care as safe as possible. Learn more about all of our important safety measures here:
