Child’s Play Learning Center is always recruiting skilled, talented teachers, assistants and substitutes to serve our families. If you have a passion for working with children in a family-centered atmosphere, please complete an application and return it to us via US mail, hand deliver, or Email Us.
We are an extension of the family. During the early childhood years, a child’s growth and development is dependent upon a sense of security. A positive self-concept is directly proportional to the quality of care that a child receives. It has been our success story to create a close, warm relationship between the children, parents, teachers, and administration. Child’s Play is a family friendly center. We believe that by building trusting relationships with all of our families, we help to strengthen and support the social and emotional competence of the children that attend Child’s Play.
