Get back to doing what you love, working with children at Early Connections Learning Centers!
At Early Connections, we have a different approach to the role of Center Directors in an early education program. We honor and respect the education and leadership that is required to create a quality environment that supports children, families, and teachers. Our model allows directors to coach teachers, implement curriculum, engage with families, and promote a quality setting that prepares children and families for school and life success.
Early Connections has a centralized structure for marketing, enrollment, setting and collecting fees and human resources which allows our Center Directors to focus on what’s really important – building relationships with children and families. We offer additional support for our staff you won’t find in other early education organizations, including a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) and two Behavioral Health Specialists on staff to assist with children’s health and social-emotional development. We also offer professional development opportunities and provide support for family engagement and curriculum and assessment. Unlike early education organizations, we manage most of our classrooms with lower teacher/child ratios.
Qualifications: Candidates must hold a current Colorado Director Qualification Certificate as well as have a minimum of a BA in one of the following: Early Childhood Education, Child Development, Elementary Education or Early Childhood Special Ed with 9 credits in business or program administration.
Salary is based on education. We also provide a generous $2,000.00 sign-on bonus!
Directors Letter and transcripts must be submitted with a resume to be considered for an interview.
