Start With Competitive Pay And Benefits Too

Receive competitive compensation, so you know you’re valued. Full-time employees receive health benefits that offer a safety net. Dental and supplemental insurance are also available, and life insurance too after at least 3 years of employment.

Paid Time Off For A Personal Reboot

Enjoy paid time off on major holidays, for a well-deserved recharge. Full-time employees receive vacation and sick time leave as well as doctor’s appointments, and the caring of a family member. PTO leave is accrued based on the employee’s length of service.

Professional Training For Career Expertise

Enjoy paid team and staff meetings, professional days, teacher planning time, and Child Care Credential support, because ongoing annual training gives you an edge, so you can grow your knowledge base and benefit the children in your care–not to mention your resume.
