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.

  • @thelearninglamp:The Employee Spotlight this week features Heidi Buchan, our Fingerprint Specialist and Prevention Assistant at The Learning Lamp. Heidi has called our main office home for fingerprinting services for over three years now. Her office sees the most activity of any at TLL and is the source of thousands of new faces every year. It’s a common occurrence for someone to visit for a fingerprinting appointment then end up being reunited with an old friend who works in the main office. “I really enjoy working in a friendly environment with some pretty great co-workers,” says Buchan. “And I appreciate working for an organization that does so much for children in our area.” We’re also appreciative of Heidi and all the work she does for us. Thank you, Heidi!
