    I have been working at Children's Learning Connection (More than a year)


    I have been working as a Direct Service Provider at CLC for a year and absolutely love it. I love the kids, the families, the supervisors, the other DSPs, everything. This job allows for independence in the workplace, encourages employees to achieve their full potential both as employees AND human beings (which is often overlooked in many workplaces), and treats everyone with respect and trust. The supervisors are the people that you have the most direct contact with (aside from the families), who you tend to see during a session a few times a month. All of the CLC supervisors I've worked with are the most caring, dedicated and helpful individuals/supervisors an employee could ever ask for.

    The kids we work with are some of the most inspirational, hardworking, challenging, silly, fun little humans you'll ever meet. Most of our days are spent learning to communicate functionally and appropriately, playing with legos and trucks and doll houses, learning to read, jumping on trampolines, learning to label important words, managing meltdowns, getting used to being in grocery stores without any maladaptive behaviors, singing songs and growing as people (both the DSPs and the kids).

    CLC is a great company to work for, whether you're still in school, just graduated, looking for something new, etc. This job is by no means easy, but it is definitely worth it and I would recommend it to everyone.


    Sometimes you wont have a full time schedule, but that's the nature of working with kids. The 12:30-2:30 spot is very hard to fill in any job with kids; those under 3 or 4 are napping and over 4 or 5 are in school at that time. Scheduling does their best to fill that spot if you ask for it. 30-40 hours a week is definitely possible (my current schedule), but not always stable (my schedule last month). Luckily, CLC pays pretty well (and pays both drive time and mileage) compared to other ABA companies, so it makes up for it!

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support employees at all levels. Sometimes the supervisors are so busy with their supervision sessions, reports, entering programs into central reach, etc. that they don't always have time to respond to emails and phone calls about the kids that need to be responded to. The kids are why we do this and should be everyone's top priority.

    Direct Service Provider Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fountain Valley, CA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Children's Learning Connection (Fountain Valley, CA).


    It was a group interview, but I was not told beforehand that this would be the case. Otherwise interview went smoothly, mostly involved questions inquiring on my experience with children and how I would do in a situation where a child was being physically violent.
