For security reasons and protection of our subs we DO NOT require them to bring their documents on every assignment, instead:
1.) Every provider contracted with ECE has access to our HR system to download all necessary documents from each substitute’s file.
If the substitute is currently on location: All of the subs have their required documents in the app. All of the documents are state specific according to the Department of Social Services and Child Care Licensing regulations. If licensing shows up, the substitutes can send any of the documents in an email.
ECE Substitutes follows all state specified rules and regulations especially as it pertains to our staff. Therefore, all background checks, health forms, state certifications will be state specific according to the Department of Social Services and Child Care Licensing.
ECE Substitutes, Inc. hires, trains, pays, and provides all resources for our substitutes, so they can be ready when you are.
In any other field, sick days can happen without too much disruption to the workflow, but that is not the case for early childhood, especially when you have to maintain child/teacher ratios. So, ECE Substitutes has dedicated trained, talented, ready to go staff, willing to support each facility in their time of need.
Yes. There is a cost for our services. You are billed per hour for the substitutes who fullfil your job requests. No other fees are charged. There are not monthly or contract fees when using ECE Substitutes, Inc.
In order to get substitutes to your facility, each provider must register in our system (click on the Get Started button in the menu bar) to initiate the process. Once, we receive the registration one of our account managers will be in contact to schedule a site visit and go over process, contract terms, pricing for the substitutes.
In addition to orientation and a review of state licensing regulations, each substitute is required to take the following training courses:
Recognizing the Signs of Child Abuse and Neglect
Basic Child Development
Safe Sleep Practices
Prevention and control of infectious diseases
Prevention of and response to food reactions
Building Premises Safety
Handling and Storage of Hazardous Materials
We ask that once our substitute gets to your facility, you set aside 15-20 minutes to do brief introductions, a tour of the facility, share your policies and procedures, and show them the emergency preparedness plans and exits. We believe these items are necessary to help the substitute get acclimated to your facility and assist in the seamless workflow of the day.
Since the substitutes work for ECE Substitutes, you will NOT need to pay them for their services, you simply sign off on the invoices that are sent from the ECE Substitutes admin office.
ECE Substitutes have the option to accept and work various hours according to your specific job posting. As long as the hours are posted on the job post, the need will be fulfilled.
Yes. Once you have an account, you have access to the job posting system to post as many jobs as you need ranging from immediate needs to long-term needs.
First and foremost, each substitute has to pass a fingerprint background check and undergo our vetting process to even become an ECE Substitute.
Then, once a job is posted by the provider, a substitute will accept the job, and in return the provider will receive an email of the person who accepted a job, inclusive of their photo and mini bio information.
Yes, Definitely. A lot of times substitutes are looking for permanent positions, so if the position works out for all the parties involve that is a bonus.
