Students will work in-person &/or virtually with children ages 2-5 in community preschools and daycare centers. These placements offer hands-on experiences with a diverse group of children and the lecture series explores a variety of topics that influence child development. The placement sites vary in terms of the populations they serve, including “at-risk” children, children with special needs, and children of international families with English as a second language.

COVID PROTOCOL: Sites may have additional protocols that will need to be followed, which may include a COVID Vaccination.

Students are required to forward the completion email or email a copy of their certificate to:

BACKGROUND CHECKS: Site placements with minors and the University of Michigan requires all students enrolled in this section pass a background check BEFORE they will be allowed to interact with minors at the site. Most sites perform background checks during the orientation process, including a Department of Human Services (DHS) clearance required by the sites.

FLU VACCINATION AND TB TEST (REQUIRED): Some site placements require students to obtain a flu vaccination and a TB test with negative results prior to attending site. Plan to bring a copy of the letter and vaccination documentation with you the first time you go to the site.

NOTE: The TB test and Flu Vaccination fees are not covered by the course or the University. You may have them done through your own health care provider. Flu vaccinations are typically free of charge. TB tests range in price depending on the provider. See Testing Sites for more information:
