Temporary Early Childhood Employment Bulletin Board

In an effort to assist School Readiness and VPK child care providers with their temporary staffing needs during the COVID-19 crisis, the Early Learning Coalition of Polk County will temporarily be providing a list of job openings available at child care facilities that remain open and are currently serving children, ages birth through school age.  The job postings herein are a community service and do not represent an endorsement of the organization’s employment practices.   Coalition staff do not provide recommendations for applicants or employers, and the Coalition will not be involved in any provider’s hiring practices, employment agreements/contracts or other legal matters.    Applicants should exercise their own judgment about which job constitutes the best fit for them.  Please contact the child care facility directly by e-mail or telephone if you are interested in any of the positions listed below.


A reminder for all child care center owners/operations — All child care staff must meet DCF training and other employment requirements.   Also, as always, all staff must have a current file available on-site.  For more information, please refer to DCF’s website at https://www.myflfamilies.com/service-programs/child-care/laws-and-requirements.shtml. DCF Child Care staff can also be reached at (863)499-2222.
