Inclusion Facilitators - Inclusion Facilitators are CCAs who provide extra support in programs where children have additional support needs.

Early Childhood Educators - ECEs develop and implement emergent curriculum that supports the cognitive, emotional, social and physical development of the children in their care. ECEs must complete an Early Childhood Education diploma or degree program for this classification.

Rainbow's wage scale begins at $17.04 for CCAs who have completed a 40-hour course related to early childhood education. ECE entry level wages start at $20.20

Rainbow provides professional development opportunities to all staff four times each year on a variety of topics. Circle of Security training is available in-house to small groups, and permanent staff are also eligible for reimbursement up to $100 per year for other training workshops and conferences.
