Kasey from Apprenticeship RI and our apprentices!

Congratulations to our new Early Childhood Education apprentices! Lorena, Jessica, Angie, and Esmeralda are pictured here with Kasey from Apprenticeship Rhode Island. The ECE Apprenticeship is an opportunity for teaching assistants to learn and earn credentials while working towards becoming an Early Learning teacher. 

Participants will be assigned a mentor from senior staff and will work towards earning the Childhood Development Associate Credential (CDA) throughout the program. The apprenticeship is intended to meet the career needs of each employee and can be paced accordingly. Apprentices are paid, and receive an increase in wages as they gain skills throughout the program.

Best of luck to our apprentices in this exciting new program and special thanks to our program partners at Apprenticeship Rhode Island!

The Early Learning Center staff celebrates their 5-star BrightStars rating!

The Early Learning Center staff celebrates their 5-star BrightStars rating!

We are so pleased to share that Genesis Center is now a 5-Star BrightStars Early Learning program! In Providence, we are now in the top 8% of rated centers in RI and one of only six 5-star rated BrightStars programs.

BrightStars, Rhode Island’s Tiered Quality Rating and Improvement system, assists families in finding care and recognizes and supports quality in early care and education programs. Through the star rating system, BrightStars helps early learning, education and school-age programs that care for children learn about best practices and apply them to the care children receive. BrightStars recognizes program quality and gives parents information to make choices about their children’s care and education.”

Congratulations to our Early Learning Center staff.
