The Intern Program is offered for those who want to work in the field of child care.  The program includes paid work experience with pre-school children under the direction of a teacher, on-site training in child development and the HighScope Curriculum Approach, and professional development counseling.    Applicants to the intern program must have college course work in child development and either be enrolled in or be willing to enroll in college courses to attain an AA or certification in child development. 

The Bus Aide/Trainee Program is an entry-level program offering employability skills.  Bus Aid/Trainees ride the buses to escort children.  Some work part-time.  Others also work in other areas of the agency.  Parents of Head Start and Early Head Start children are given first priority.  Applicants for Bus Aide/Trainee must have a high school diploma or GED and be age 19 or older.

On-going Staff Training is essential to provide a quality program.  ACHR has two HighScope Trainers of Teachers, both of whom are also trained in The Program for Infant/Toddler Caregivers (PITC) developed by West Ed.  They provide regular training to Head Start and Early Head Start teachers, interns and parents.  ACHR has six staff who are certified in the Classroom Assessment Scoring System (CLASS), which is an observational tool through which trained staff help teachers improve the quality of their classrooms.
