Salary Supplements

Smart Start of Forsyth County offers an education-based salary supplement through the Child Care WAGE$ Project. The project is designed to provide preschool children more stable relationships with better educated teachers by rewarding teacher education and continuity of care. Any child care professional earning at or below selected income caps may be eligible to participate. The supplement recipient must work with children between the ages of 0-5 at least 10 hours per week in a licensed child care program in Forsyth County and must have some formal child care credential or education beyond a high school diploma. In order to participate in the project, interested child care professionals must complete an application and provide verification of current employment in a participating county child care program, current wages and educational credentials.
