Careers

providing high-quality early education is your calling

We pride ourselves on
our high standards

To qualify, applicants must have either a Child development Associate (CDA) credential or be enrolled in an Early Childhood college track and must have started or completed 45 hours of Department of Children and Families training so we can ensure we’re living up to our reputation.

Competitive wages that lead into long-term pay off

Limited turnover creates a tight-knit team, that’s why, after a year, all staff get paid time off for nine holidays annually. After 1-5 years of working full time, enjoy 11 days of paid time off. After 6-10 years working full time, 16, and after working 11 or more years full time, enjoy 21.

We invest in your education to help you reach your full potential

College students may have early childhood classes paid for through the Teach Scholarship Program, and we provide annual professional and CPR training. Those with National CDAs, Associate of Arts or Bachelor’s degrees may earn an additional $1000 – $2,000 more annually.

Flexibility means you maintain a healthy life-work balance

Part and full time positions available along with flexible scheduling for college students so you can gain valuable experience and fulfill your professional goals.

Perks include discounts
and creature comforts that make life easier

Enjoy discounted rates for your child’s care and organic lunches on the house daily so you have one less thing to worry about. Take a break in our teacher’s lounge, complete with couches, wifi, tablet, microwave and coffee maker so you can stay refreshed.

An environment where learning isn’t limited to our little students

Our super accessible leadership is ready to coach, guide and answer questions as they come. We recognize the families and students we serve are unique, and that approaches and solutions can evolve to meet those challenges and needs.

Play is a crucial part of
early learning, but adults
can benefit too!

Look forward to staff appreciation days and events, social outings and an overall good humored workplace environment where we take joy in our careers, value each other’s experience and grow together.

I have worked at Kids For Kids Academy since 2018. I attended the school when I was 4 years old, attended their after school and summer camp programs when I was in elementary school and middle school, as well as volunteered throughout my high school years. I am now in college and studying to be a teacher. What I like most about working at Kids For Kids is getting to see all the children learn in a fun and creative way. Seeing the joy on children's faces when they come to school, brings me joy. Having the pleasure of working at Kids for Kids Academy has allowed me to build an extended family with my co-workers. Working for Mrs. Davis is amazing and I wouldn't change it for the world.

Hello, My name is Ana, I have been a pre k teacher at Kids for Kids Academy since Mrs. Davis opened the school in 2005. What makes our school special is how dedicated, caring and loving our staff is. The children enjoy our beautiful playground, learn in our school garden. They perform hands on experiments in our Science lab. We have lots of enrichments like exercising during the Soccer class and music classes. All kids play and learn in the seven different areas in the classroom with plenty of toys. We have on site field trips, learn measuring during cooking activities and in our organic garden. We all care about each other and the children in our care. For all these reasons I feel blessed to be part of the Kids for Kids Academy family.
