CHANCES: Island-wide, from O’Leary to Montague.
- Substitute Special Needs Educators
- Youth Educators
- Certified Early Childhood Educators
CHANCES is a non-profit charitable organization that provides early intervention and support to children up to 11 years old and their families, especially those experiencing additional life challenges or conditions of risk. About 130 staff work there full-time or part-time.
They offer prenatal classes and parenting programs. There are also early years programs and after school programs,
in-home visits, and drop-in programs focusing on literacy enrichment.
All programs are staffed by Early Childhood Educators.
“The hardest position to fill is Level 3 Certified Early Childhood Educator,” says Dawn MacLeod. “Everyone in the sector is looking for them, especially since the federal government is offering funding to open up more childcare spaces. It’s an amazing field to be part of.”
