Application Process

Everyone is required to complete an online application. Our Personnel office reviews all submissions and evaluates each candidate closely for both strong activity and interpersonal skills.

Personal Interview

After applications have been reviewed, we’ll reach out via email to set up an interview with a member of our personnel team. The interview typically takes about an hour.  We prefer in-person interviews in our corporate office but will do video calls as well.

Check References

We will check the references listed in your application. To ensure our staff members are fit to work with children, we run background checks on each and every staff member.
