SEIU Local 99 proudly announces pilot apprenticeship program for child care providers.

EN ESPAÑOL ABAJO

In partnership with The Child Care Resource Center (CCRC), we are getting ready to launch a pilot Family Child Care Apprenticeship Program for providers in the San Fernando and Antelope Valleys.

This program will allow providers to advance their education while at the same time receive wage supplements as they advance through the program. This groundbreaking program is similar to one launched earlier this year for our colleagues working in centers for MAOF.

  • As apprentices, qualifying child care providers will receive training, one-on-one coaching, and FREE college courses leading to an Assistant, Associate Teacher, or Teacher Child Development Permit—while earning higher wages!
  • Apprentices can expect to receive wage supplements as they meet particular program milestones.
  • Apprentices will receive one-on-one bi-monthly coaching and college coursework provided at convenient times and locations.
  • SEIU Apprentices will be part of a cohort—a small group of early educators with similar backgrounds and goals, working in similar programs, with similar goals. Cohort members build peer relationships, learn from each other and receive support in tackling professional challenges.
  • Through the Apprenticeship, participants become qualified for more advanced Child Development Permits, continuing on a path toward AA and BA degree attainment.
  • Apprentices will receive academic advisement, individualized education plans, and other assistance to support successful completion of the coursework.
  • All college coursework will be provided at no cost. Most of our other expenses will also be covered (such as textbooks).

This is a pilot program that we hope to expand to all union early educators, including other center workers and family child care providers.

The SEIU Early Educators and Family Child Care Apprenticeship Programs are developed in partnership and/or funded by SEIU, the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office California Apprenticeship Initiative, the California Workforce Investment Board’s Workforce Accelerator Fund, MAOF and CCRC.
