When They Grow
Family Development Services’ offers a dynamic, rewarding, and diverse teaching environment with a path to personal and professional growth.
Think on-the-job-training, but elevated: Get paid a competitive hourly wage and earn valuable, practical experience teaching in an Early Head Start or Head Start classroom. We’ll also cover the cost of your Child Development Associate (CDA) credentialing and license, as well as an associate’s degree in early childhood education if desired. Opportunities are immediately available – positions will start in August for the 2022-23 school year.
Be part of a full circle of learning that benefits students, our staff and the community at large.
Our programs are designed to nourish early childhood development and foster long-term learning and social skills through education, comprehensive health services, active family involvement, and family support services such as employment counseling, literacy education, and crisis intervention. These fundamental skills mean better educational and societal outcomes for everyone.
Who are you
If you have experience working with infants, toddlers or preschoolers in a daycare setting but don’t have a degree, the apprenticeship program allows you the chance to earn a higher wage – and earn your degree or CDA credential as you go.
The apprenticeship program is also perfect for those who have a degree in another field, but want to make a difference in the lives of children through teaching. The program offers a cost-effective, hands-on path to career change.
