Well-trained, educated teachers are the cornerstones of a high-quality childcare program!
We are current accepting applications for full-time and part-time positions.
Head teachers generally have a 4–year degree in Early Childhood Education (or a related field) plus experience. Other full time teaching staff generally have a four or 2–year degree in Early Childhood Education (or a related field) and practical experience working with young children. All staff members receive on–going training and attend weekly and monthly center planning meetings. All full-time staff are certified in Basic First Aid and C.P.R.
Gretchen’s House offers competitive salaries commensurate with education and experience. For the 2009-2010 year, first year teachers with a four-year degree in early childhood start at $25,000. Our cafeteria benefits plan includes medical, dental, cancer, accident, vision, and short-term disability insurance, flexible spending medical and childcare reimbursement accounts, and a 401(K) plan with employer matching contribution. Staff also receive a childcare discount. We offer paid time off to our employees. First year, full-time staff earn 3.5 hours of vacation/comp time per month, increasing each year of employment up to 10 hours earned each month for a seventh-year employee. Full-time staff receive 8-9 paid holidays per year, with the week between Christmas and New year as paid vacation time. All full-time staff earn four hours of sick time per month. Part-time staff who work at least 20 hours per week earn vacation and sick time at half the full-time rates and receive half of the paid holiday benefit.
