The Children’s Trust Keeps Focus on Supporting Vulnerable Early Learning Teachers with Salary Supplement Program
The Children’s Trust is doing its part to make sure that the early learning educators whose job it is to care for the children of first-responders and essential workers continue to receive the salary supplements they depend on despite the current coronavirus pandemic. Trust CEO and President James R. Haj and Associate Director of Programs Rachel Spector made a special trip to The Children’s Trust headquarters on Friday, March 27, specifically to sign checks as part of an incentive program for the early learning educators that rewards quality instruction and stability in the critical education sector.
Early learning teachers make less than public school teachers and do not have regular access to benefits or unions to fight on their behalf they have been left particularly vulnerable during the Coronavirus pandemic, making the salary supplement program even more crucial.
The Trust remains committed to the program and delivering the much-needed checks throughout the current situation.
The Children’s Trust will maintain continuity of operation during this time, while allowing its staff to work remotely. The Trust will continue to monitor this quickly evolving situation and will announce additional measures as needs evolve. For more information visit www.TheChildrensTrust.org
