What It’s Like to Work at ERfC:

Each ERfC School-Age Center is run by a Center Administrator who supervises the Team Leaders and children. We maintain one Team Leader for every 10 students. The JFK After School serves children in grades 6-8. The School-Age Centers at Nathan Hale, Enfield Street, Barnard, and Hazardville serve grades K-5. Each center typically enrolls 40-50 students.

The Before School program allows children to work off some energy in the school gym before starting the day with a healthy breakfast.

A typical After School day begins with attendance and a snack. Then children divide into groups of 8-10, each led by a Team Leader, and rotate through scheduled activities, including indoor and outdoor sports activities, homework time, arts and crafts, and a wide variety of enrichment activities.

ERfC staff are passionate about our mission to help kids learn, reach their goals, and contribute to their communities. Our programs support kids and families in making real, measurable progress. This means our staff gain real, practical experience in delivering academic and enrichment programming—as well as the satisfaction that comes from changing lives.

No wonder many of our Team Leaders come back year after year!

Head Teacher Certification:

Each center has a certified Head Techer who is usually also the Center Administrator. Certification is from the State of Connecticut. Team Leaders who meet the academic requirements prior to joining ERfC have a head-start on achieving certification and on advancement within ERfC. Requirements for certification are as follows:

  • Twelve (12) credits in early childhood education or child development, elementary education, recreation, group social work or a related field from an accredited institution of higher education with program approval from the Board of Governors of Higher Education AND at least five hundred and forty (540) hours of documented supervised experience over a nine (9) month span of time working with unrelated children age five (5) to twelve (12).     OR
