Helping Families Ensure Their Children Enter School Ready to Learn

Child Care Partners

Episcopal Children’s Services (ECS) is looking for private child care owners and directors who are interested in taking on a challenging but rewarding role as an Early Head Start or Head Start Child Care Partner.

Child Care partners take Early Head Start (infants and toddlers) and Head Start (Preschool) children into their centers – generally devoting a classroom or more – and adhere to all of the requirements of the program.
