The quality of an early childhood education program is directly tied to the quality and longevity of its staff. With this in mind, the Center for Early Childhood Education (CECE) believes in hiring knowledgeable, committed early childhood professionals. We are certain that each employee’s tenure with CECE will be an enriching experience that is enhanced by professional growth and success and offer a wage and benefits package that is among the best in the industry. Our child-staff ratios are equal to, and in most cases, better than NAEYC’s, and our incentives, organizational culture and benefits have rapidly made the Center for Early Childhood Education one of Houston’s most respected early education organizations to work for.
At CECE, we have found the following to be major sources of satisfaction for early childhood practitioners:
- Observing progress in children
- Building strong relationships with children
- Challenges of the work
- Positive relationships with parents
- Recognition shown by staff
By acknowledging these sources of satisfaction, offering attractive salaries and benefits, and by providing indirect methods of worker compensation such as training, mentoring and enhanced professional development opportunities, we are committed to growing and developing CECE employees. CECE values individual diversity and is an equal opportunity employer. This means that each individual is treated on the basis of his or her own merit without regard to race, color, age, sex, national origin, handicap or veteran status.
