Employment

Our company offers plentiful employment opportunities at our growing child care centers. We offer multiple campus location options! We care for children from newborn through 5 years in our various age based programs while following stringent quality measures to ensure we offer top quality child care and education to the children in our care. 

The quality of the program is due to the quality of the staff. It is vital to attract staff that is experienced and knowledgeable in the field of early childhood. Each classroom is staffed with one full-time teacher. Additional part-time staff float between rooms to offer additional support or coverage where needed. All staff must have some level of experience with young children and demonstrate a genuine interest in children.

Tolerance and understanding are fostered by positive exposure to various ages, genders, lifestyles, family structures, races, cultures, religions, and physical abilities. Therefore, we emphasize an environment that welcomes diversity and challenges bias and discrimination.

Upon application, a short interview will be held via phone. Those of interest will be asked to schedule a second interview on-site with more detailed experiences allowing you to get to know us while we get to know you. This will involve an in-person interview by a member of our team as well as a peer interview. Following these interviews, reference inquiry is completed.

Upon hire, we complete initial and on-going state and federal regulatory checks to ensure a safe background. 

Each staff member is required to complete at least 30 hours of continuing education in child development or special education upon hire, and each following year. We will assist you in registering for learning opportunities as they become available. This requirement exceeds what state licensing regulations require and is crucial in maintaining qualified teachers for the ongoing success of our program. 

All staff complete certification in Infant/Child/Adult CPR/First Aid/AED/Epipen/Universal Precautions upon hire and upon each expiration. CPR courses are taught on-campus by a member of our administration. 

New staff will undergo a one to two week training with our Management Team & senior teachers prior to being left alone in a classroom. We ensure that each staff member feels comfortable in his/her surrounding and has proper training to have all skills to be successful in this job. All staff begin with a 90-day probationary period while continuing training and receives performance evaluations. 

For those wishing to extend their education, we support our staff in endless continuing education opportunities both online and in-class. We participate with state-education scholarships and grants. In addition, our company offers a CDA (Child Development Associate) Education Program for either Infant/Toddler or PreSchool. We feel we offer a career opportunity with a caring, fun & energetic atmosphere! Team work and a positive attitude are of highest priority when adding new staff.
