Professional Start for Substitute Caregivers

Looking for a job with flexibility and an opportunity to work with kids? We are currently running a program to support our Family Child Care and Center programs in their search for substitute caregivers. You need to be willing to work in 4 different programs. You need to pass a background check. We will help you get your fingerprints and Background check from licensing and reimburse you for your CPR/First aid certification. Each program will be responsible to orient you to their rules and licensing regulations. You are responsible for scheduling with the program and receiving payment from the program, similar to an independent contractor. CAC is not responsible for payment to substitute caregivers. After you have substituted in 4 different programs you will be eligible for a $200.00 incentive.
