Children of America (COA): It’s A Special Recipe of People, Principles And Pride...

Working at COA is more than just a job, it’s an environment that enables you to achieve your career goals while helping children and families realize their own. As industry leaders we offer an unparalleled developmental program that takes education, reading, physical fitness and nutrition to a new level in early childhood development. The same passion we put into our children and families guides our professional culture, empowering diverse and talented people to focus on the best parts of their character and capabilities – and to use those qualities to redefine their potential.

Our leaders not only have a vision, great communication and people skills, they also have a vast knowledge of their industry. As an organization, we believe in growing and nurturing from within. In fact, over 65 percent of our leadership team started as teachers. We pride ourselves on creating strong managers across our organization who are focused on motivating and engaging associates in today’s fast-moving workplace.

We all know that building a successful business cannot be done alone and staying relevant takes a team approach. For that reason, the foundation of our culture is PEEEPs, through which, People, Education, Expenses, Enrollment and Performance are the framework adopted to maximize success. COA is an environment where team members can bring their whole selves to work, and where individuality, creativity and contributions are valued. In short, we are passionate group of individuals driven by the common idea of delivering the exceptional COA Experience to everyone we meet. In this spirit, we manage more than 65 high-quality childcare centers in DE, IL, IN, MA, MD, NY, NC, OH, PA, VA and WI and employ more than 2,000 employees.

“Working at COA gave me great experience in the childcare field as an early education/special education major. I got to work with children hands-on everyday, as well as prepare lessons and strengthen my ability to communicate with parents and other childcare professionals.”
