Are you interested in a meaningful career working with infants, toddlers and preschoolers?
The Center for Childcare Careers offers advising and training for individuals working or looking to enter the early childhood workforce. The Early Childhood Development Apprenticeship is a new program that provides support to individuals, helping them gain work competencies and meet state qualifications to work in licensed child care centers, preschools and family child care homes. And since we are a grant-funded program, training and coaching is available at a very affordable cost.
Child Care Programs
Is it a challenge to find good staff who want to work with young children?
Do you have limited time to train and mentor new staff?
Do you want to improve staff retention and morale?
The Early Childhood Development Apprenticeship program in Worcester is a new model to develop staff competencies within a one-year period with classroom and on-the-job training. Apprentices get to “Earn and Learn”. An experienced staff member in your program can be trained to be a coach or one of our experienced coaches will guide and support the apprentice.
Community Organizations and Businesses
Do your employees need safe, quality child care to perform their best at work?
The Early Childhood Development Apprenticeship program is supporting local child care centers by training entry level staff. This increases staff competency over a shorter period of time and increases retention. Parents count on their child’s daily caregiver and want a consistent, positive relationship for their child and family.
