Are you an Early Childhood Educator who has been out of the field for at least two years? Would $5000 make you consider returning to the field?
On January 1, 2008 the Province of British Columbia introduced The Early Childhood Educator Incentive Grants Program in the hopes of alleviating the growing shortage of licensed child care providers in this province. Full and part-time employees can receive up to $2500 at the end of each year for their first two years of re-employment in a licensed facility. Act now, as the incentive program is only available to the first 100 eligible applicants.
Are you a new graduate of an ECE program? ECEâ€™s who graduated in 2007 or who will be graduating in 2008 are eligible for up to $2500 toward outstanding B.C. Student Loans. New ECEâ€™s may receive up to $1250 after each of the first and second years of employment in a licensed facility.
For more information on these programs, visit the Government of B.C. Website
If you love working with children, donâ€™t miss this exciting opportunity.
At The Career Centre there have been 8-10 postings for Early Childhood Educators and just as many for experienced Child Care providers in the last six months
