In the field of after-school care, staff retention is a challenge. Ideally for children, the same staff return year after year. With a part time employment pool, compiling a benefit package that facilitates retention is key. Open Door offers:

  • participation in a pension plan
  • paid holidays
  • paid personal days including a bonus paid birthday
  • paid time for staff development
  • tuition reimbursement for college students
  • free child care for the children of staff
  • staff shirts provided at no cost
  • service appreciation awards
  • paperwork completion bonus

Staff retention offers children the opportunity to bond with staff, enhancing a sense of security for children.
