Our company, Child Care Partners, consists of five early learning centers each with its own director and teachers. Across the centers we have unifying values, goals and curricula. Believing that "those who create commit", we foster an atmosphere of collaborative decision making. Our directors have a role in evaluating information on proposed changes; likewise, each center director seeks input from her staff when considering changes. We also bring together groups of teachers from our schools for round-table discussions on program issues and problem solving.
While we may not always agree, we all have a voice!
When hiring new team members, we look for those who value integrity, professionalism, loyalty, empathy and mutual respect. Our staff puts children first and are dedicated to facilitating intellectual and physical development, as well as, supporting children socially and emotionally.
We support our staff with above average wages, individualized trainings and opportunities for professional growth. We have a benefits package that includes Paid Time Off, Health, Dental, Vision, Aflac, Simple IRA, Tuition Assistance, Training Stipends and more.
Teachers are the heart of our program!
