Careers

SPEC is always interested in adding creative, responsible people to our team. We value both education and experience when considering applicants, and we support those who are starting or continuing their education in the field. Through the TEACH Scholarship, we assist with the cost of tuition and books when employees are working towards their degrees in early childhood education. Other benefits we offer include:

  • Health insurance
  • Child care discounts
  • Paid vacation and holidays
  • 401K Savings plan
  • Supplemental insurance
  • Pre-paid legal services

We are a well established, family owned organization with a long standing commitment to the children and families of our community. Both full-time and part-time positions are available, with flexible schedules and promotion opportunities.
