Childcare Career Opportunities

Kiddies Kollege Christian Center is always in search of dedicated, motivated, nurturing professionals who love challenges and are committed to inspiring and molding eager young minds in a Christian-based setting. 

 

Various staff positions are needed to operate our Child Care Center.  All staff must meet certain educational and experience qualifications, get health screenings, and undergo background checks for FBI and State criminal histories in addition to child abuse and neglect clearances.
