RDCA is a great place to work and grow!

We have seven child care centers and have a staff of over 100 dedicated child care professionals. We have something to offer the most seasoned and experienced educators as well as the novice. There are a variety of positions available to qualified, prospective applicants. Check our current postings above for open positions.

RDCA offers employees — whether full time or part time — annual/vacation leave, sick and safe leave, and a FREE day off for the employee’s birthday (after first year of employment). Eligible employees, based on years of service, may also earn 1 or 2 days of personal leave per year.

RDCA offers eligible employees the opportunity to participate in the company 401(k) plan. RDCA will match 33% of the employees first 4% of salary deferment.

RDCA offers eligible full time employees, who work 30 or more hours per week, the opportunity to enroll in our Health Insurance Plan. We currently offer Kaiser Permanente as our health insurance carrier (staff employed at the Northwest CCC also have Aetna as an option).  RDCA contributes 70% toward the traditional HMO plan for individual subscribers and 100% for the HDHP plan. Staff plus one, and staff with family, will receive a 50% contribution toward health insurance.

We also offer supplemental insurance plans through Dominion for dental & vision and AFLAC which offers a variety of insurance products. These plans are voluntary.

RDCA offers eligible employees a “pre-tax” benefit which allows staff to deduct their 401(k), health insurance, Dominion and AFLAC premiums from their gross salaries before taxes are computed. This has provided many of our staff a substantial savings.

RDCA offers staff members with children enrolled in one of our programs a 30% discount on their child care tuition.

RDCA  does not believe in the practice of establishing staff hours based on daily/hourly attendance patterns. Our staff are hired for regular, pre-established hours and will be paid for their scheduled hours.

RDCA employees receive a company polo upon hire and at other times throughout the year.  Additional RDCA apparel is available for purchase seasonally.

Staff may receive a salary increase on their employment anniversary date. RDCA has budgeted for a 2% salary increase in 2017.

The board of directors has also established a Referral Bonus in the amount of $100.00 for current staff members who refer someone to work at RDCA. This bonus is given in two parts – $25.00 upon the new employee’s start date and the $75.00 balance is given after the new employee completes three months of employment.

There is room for advancement! RDCA makes every effort to promote from within the organization. RDCA may pay for professional development, class tuition, and for courses required for licensing and accreditation as deemed necessary, appropriate and applicable to RDCA programs.
