For Teachers & Caregivers

Child Care Staffing Solutions provides "job-ready" substitutes through an innovative and automated platform.

Quality care for young children is a foundational need for their development and well-being.  Children need consistency of care with familiar faces, directors need substitute staff that is available and well-trained, parents need assurance that staff is well-prepared, and staff need the opportunity to be away from the classroom for professional development and personal needs.  This is where Child Care Staffing Solutions comes in...

  • CPL 1 &2 level substitute receives $10 an hour
