Postgraduate Fellowships

Calvin Hill Day Care Center, in collaboration with the Yale Child Study Center, is proud to offer two Fellowship opportunities for the 2018-2019 academic year. Our fellowship programs are a unique combination of engagement in a high quality preschool classroom setting and participation in related courses in a nationally renowned child development clinic. The one-year programs are designed as a supervised and supported entry into the professional world of early childhood education, childcare, and clinical work with young children.

The Carla Horwitz Fellowship in Child Development and Early Childhood Education

This program is for individuals with an interest in child development, early childhood education, and clinical evaluations and interventions with young children and their families. Carla Horwitz Fellows participate in the weekly seminar, “Clinical Child Development and Assessment of Young Children” at the Yale Child Study Center. Fellows observe senior clinicians conducting developmental assessments and participate in the ongoing discussion of diagnostic formulations. Through this exposure, Fellows become familiar with the processes of clinical referrals, diagnostic assessment, how clinicians think about the behaviors of children in groups, the differences between an educational and a therapeutic intervention, and models for working with children in an educational setting. Graduates of this fellowship have gone on to pursue advanced degrees in medicine, psychiatry, and education.

The Seedlings Teaching Fellowship

This program is for individuals with a dedicated interest in working with young children, preferably as a teacher. Seedlings fellows have had some classroom experience and/or a degree in Early Childhood Education or Child Development. They are passionate about and interested in issues of childcare, early childhood education and advocacy on behalf of young children. Graduates of this fellowship typically go on to other childcare and early education settings to provide leadership as teachers or work in other related fields to improve the quality of care for children. Depending on their preparation and background, Seedlings Fellows may have the opportunity to participate in the seminar, “Theory and Practice of Early Childhood Education.” This course, offered by the Yale Child Study Center, explores developmentally appropriate curriculum and instruction for young children.
