OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – A local organization is hoping to attract new early childhood education teachers with a sign-on incentive.

Sunbeam Family Services says it is offering a $2,000 sign-on incentive for new early childhood education teachers.

New teachers will qualify for the incentive after 90 days of employment. Teachers must have a Child Development Associate credential, Certificate of Mastery, associate, or bachelor’s degree.

Organizers say they are looking to hire 50 teachers and staff immediately to support babies, toddlers, and their families.

“At Sunbeam, our teachers experience a calm environment, ongoing training, and don’t pay for any out-of-pocket expenses for teaching babies and toddlers,” said Anthony Stafford, senior program director of Early Childhood Services. “We hope this $2,000 incentive inspires Oklahomans to learn more about Sunbeam’s mission and join us in providing high-quality early childhood education.”
