Frequently Asked


Do you place in public schools and early learning centers?

ECE Subhub will place in high quality licensed programs in good standing.

How can we be sure that the ECE Subhub substitute understands our curriculum and can carry out the lessons provided?

Our ECE Subhub substitutes have experience with a variety of curriculum philosophies. We cannot guarantee they will be an expert on every aspect of your specific program. ECE Subhub instructs its employees to follow the curriculum and lesson plans of the school they are placed in. We provide each center a fact sheet that we send to our substitutes to help their success while at your location.

How will I know that we are getting qualified employees?

Our ECE Subhub recruiters do extensive screening and background checking of our applicants before they become part of our sub pool. We conduct thorough interviews with the applicants; obtain their background checks with fingerprint; make sure that TB testing is completed; verify their transcripts and Early Childhood course work; verify their employment record, etc. In addition, ECE Subhub requires each applicant to go through an on-site 3 day orientation session at a childcare center that covers every important aspect of each age level of the childcare work environment.

Can we place orders after hours?

Yes. You can place a request on our website or leave a message with our staff.

How does the substitute hours get clocked?

Every ECE Subhub employee has an app on their phone that they clock in and out with. The employee electronic timecard that is entered based on their clock in/out and placement requested will get approved before employee gets paid and center gets billed.

How do the centers get billed?

Every week the centers will get an invoice based on the substitute teacher’s hours worked. These invoices are due upon receipt. Bills are paid electronically.

What costs will I save by using ECE Subhub?

When you use a teacher from ECE Subhub it is usually because you have an absence with a current team member on your staff. If you were to fill that vacancy yourself, you would incur all of the following costs:

  • Director Wages spent covering classes or managing absences
  • Payroll Taxes (Social Security, Medicare, Federal UI, State UI, etc.)
  • Benefit Costs
  • Paid Vacation
  • Work Comp Premiums

In addition to avoiding all of the above costs, using ECE Subhub will also save you money by reducing over-time for your staff, costly employment ads, reducing your payroll processing costs, and allowing you to easily adjust your staffing levels to match fluctuating enrollment.

How quickly can you fulfill an order for a substitute?

We try and get a substitute placed as soon as we can. Of course, the more advance notice you can give, the higher the likelihood of finding an exact match for your request.

Will I be under some obligation to use your service, if I sign up now?

No, there is no obligation. Signing a contract is absolutely FREE. It does not commit you to using our services for any period of time. It just allows ECE Subhub to complete some necessary paperwork and lay out our policies and procedures as you use our company. If you have a contract signed, and you have a staffing need, all your paperwork will be in place so we can respond to your request immediately.
