Do you want to make a difference in a child’s life? The Board of Child Care is a multi-service organization with more than 400 dedicated employees across the Mid-Atlantic. Our professional staff include social workers, case managers, child care workers, special education teachers, mental health providers, medical staff, and office professionals. Each member of our team, either directly or indirectly, works to ensure the children served by BCC meet their fullest potential emotionally, socially, spiritually and academically.
You’ve joined our family.
In return, we want to support yours.
Our employees work incredibly hard each and every day, and we want to make sure that our benefits package is there to support them both at work and at home. BCC offers competitive salaries and a comprehensive benefits package. Full details about benefits are provided during the interview stage of the job application. In general, however, all full time employees receive or are eligible to elect into any of the following (some benefits only available after completion of your three month probationary period):
Paid Time Off
- All full time employees accrue vacation time at a rate of at least three weeks off per year
- Teachers and certain other staff categories have vacation time that aligns with the school academic year
You’re eligible to accrue vacation time more quickly after certain work anniversaries (up to six weeks a year). In addition, each employee receives two floating holidays to use as they wish. Paid time off is also provided for sick and funeral leave. We also provide dedicated lactation rooms (certain campuses) for new mothers returning to work.
Health, Vision, and Dental Insurance
- All full time employees have two medical plans to choose from.
You also have the option to add dental and vision coverage, and to take advantage of our two flexible spending account programs (e.g. using pre-tax dollars for qualifying expenses).
- Sometimes it’s the little things.
Almost all BCC program locations have free parking for its employees either on the property or free street parking nearby. The only exception currently is the DC Early Learning Program. DC employees are encouraged to use public transit as DC street parking is often challenging.
- Life happens. Our benefits package is here to support you when you need it.
BCC has implemented several employee benefits specifically to support them and their families in times of need. Employees are all given long term disability coverage at no cost to them, and can elect to purchase short term disability coverage if they wish. There is also a comprehensive Employee Assistance Program (EAP) that helps our staff deal with personal problems that might adversely impact their job performance, health, and well-being. We also provide complimentary life insurance coverage for your family (up to one year’s salary), with the option to increase that coverage at an additional rate if you wish.
- Performance at work is a continuing conversation, not something that happens once a year.
We do use an annual review process at BCC, but also incorporate weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly (depending on your role) check-ins with your supervisor. All new hires complete a career development plan to help guide their professional growth objectives while at BCC.
- Having a workforce that seeks ways to grow and learn professionally is important to our organizational culture.
Every employee, no matter if they are full or part time, are welcome to attend our wide variety of in-house training sessions. Additionally, each full time employee receives up to $5,000 a year for tuition reimbursement. Certain employee categories are also eligible to be reimbursed for continuing education credits, attending conferences, or going to networking events.
Planning for your Future
- All employees are eligible to participate in our tax-deferred annuity plan (e.g. 403b retirement plan).
We all want to retire someday, and BCC believes in supporting its employees to attain that goal. Our Board of Directors approves any matching funds available at the beginning of each fiscal year for that upcoming year.
Employee Appreciation Events
- We do like to have fun at work, and hope you do as well!

Employee wellness is important to us. Working here you’ll see invitations to Halloween parties, Thanksgiving celebrations, our annual “festive holiday sweater contest,” and campus high school graduations, just to name a few. We also hold an annual all staff picnic day each spring.
What should I know before applying?
Before beginning work all employees must pass state, federal and child protective services background checks; a physical, including a TB test; and drug screening. Don’t worry – we’ll go over all the paperwork you need and help make sure everything gets filed / completed before your first day.
