I would like to do observations at the CCF. How do I get started?
My instructor has made a request and is requiring an observation. What should I do next?
Can I schedule an appointment to observe at CCF on my own?
Are there any forms that I need to bring with me to my observation?
When are observations permitted?
How many students are permitted to observe at one time at CCF?
Are there any other instructions that I should know?
Yes! Please be aware that you are in a facility that deals with young children, and your conduct should reflect this. You will need to read, and comply with all of the requirements given in the Student On-Site and Remote Observation Requirements Form.
Please refrain from commenting on children or teachers while on the premises. Please keep your voice low. There should be no profanity, inappropriate slogans on t-shirts, no cell phone usage, no food or drink, and no smoking anywhere on the CCF campus.
You should also bring earphones (such as iPod earphones), since earphones are limited at the center. Also, please do not sit too close to the one-way observation glass, and keep your noise and movements to a minimum so as not to disrupt the typical flow and behavior of the class.
Can I take any pictures or recordings?
Can I use the real name of children or teachers in any reports or papers?
Can they ask me to leave the premises?
Where can students park while visiting the center?
Why are there so many requirements for observing at the CCF?
If I have other questions, who should I contact?
