Job & Education Development
Wayne Metro offers adult education and financial education programs to help Wayne County residents reach their goals. Our Job & Educational Development programs can help you prepare for the tax season, train you for a career in childhood education, and more. If you are interested in learning which of our services can benefit you and your educational development, please contact us directly.
The LEAPS adult education program is a whole-family literacy program offered to income-eligible parents and their children, ages 6 months to 8 years. The LEAPS program will help you to help your child by strengthening your own literacy skills and providing you with positive parenting and guidance tools so you can inspire your child to be a great learner and to grow in every way.
CDA Apprenticeship Program
Our LEAP to Teach program offers the opportunity to become an Early Childhood Education Professional by completing 120 hours of free, on-site training toward a Child Development Associate (CDA) credential and earning a stipend while working in an early childhood setting. Once you complete the program, you are on your way to becoming an Early Childhood Education Professional.
