Your work as an ECE professional doesn't have to be stressful... 

If you are often feeling already stressed before even starting your work day, have to face the same issues, unexpected problems and requests come up every day, and are not put into a condition to be able to give children the necessary attention and resources, have to provide by yourself for lack of supplies, feel no support from the management and go back home stressed and can’t even enjoy your free time after work - it is time for a change.

Why ScuttleBugs is the right choice for your ECE career?

We're a business-like structured organization working according to the set of processes, where you won't have unexpected tasks and will not suffer lack of communication

Nevertheless, we are a small team where people look out for each other

Each our classroom is on its turn a team of co-teaching educators

We’re extremely serious about our curriculum. You will be working with our Program Manager, to reach the teaching/learning goals for your classroom

Before starting working with us, you will go through a thorough orientation process (about a week): we want our team members to be comfortable when they start working in the classroom and to set them up to succeed and not fail. Of course, this is the best for the children too

We have 3 PDD days per year: we take time to make sure the team has an occasion to learn about updates in the ECE field and to bond. Our PDDs are not just a usual couple of supposed-to-be-fun activities, but a real learning experience that contributes into our teachers' professional growth. 

We also organize obligatory first aid and CPR courses for all the staff.

The experience of working at ScuttleBugs will help you bring your professionalism to a new level and acquire valuable skills that are not easy to find in the world of ECE.

We offer a competitive salary. 

ScuttleBugs owners are not "all about profit", they are truly supportive of the employees and understand the teachers' perspective.

We are recognized throughout the San Francisco Bay Area (CA) as a premier provider of early childhood development and child care programs that balance both education and social and emotional needs, and our center in San Jose is one of not so many centers in the area which stayed open all through the period of Pandemic. We are honored to open our first ScuttleBugs’ campus in Boulder (CO).
