If PSC shows interest in your application for employment, you must pass a nationwide background and fingerprint check before your application will be approved. Click on the button below to submit the background check.

Finally, if you are hired with PSC, you will need to create or update a GA Professional Developmental System (GaPDS) profile.  Department of Early Care and Learning (DECAL) has developed this database for early learning professionals.  This profile keeps track of your training hours, credentials, certifications, uploaded certificates for non-DECAL trainings, and employment history. 

IMPORTANT - Please enter PREFERRED SCHOOL CARE in the facility name and a list of schools will populate.  Select the school for which you are completing this background check. 

If you have any questions about completing this process, please reach out to the site director for the school you are submitting information or email preferredschoolcare@gmail.com. Thank you

PSC promotes the hiring of qualified individuals without regard to race, color, creed, sex, age, or national origin, provided they meet the requirements established for the after-school program. Prospective employees will be required to complete an application for employment, pass the APS background check, national background check and complete an interview with the Site Director, District Director and/or owner.
