City of Chattanooga


Chattanooga Office of Early Learning

Do you have a vision of early learning in Chattanooga?

Apply today & help us make it a reality. We can strengthen our City one child at a time.

Early learning is a top priority for Mayor Berke and the Office of Early Learning harnesses that passion into tangible, systemic change to improve the lives of the youngest Chattanoogans. The Office provides oversight and support for a portfolio of initiatives Headstart, Baby University, Youth and Family Development’s child care services and STEAM Lab, the Mayor’s early childhood scholarship initiative, and other early childhood programs funded by the City.

We’re seeking a Director of Early Learning to grow this initiative, build on community momentum, and bring people together around a shared, data-driven vision to improve early learning outcomes. The Director will work closely with the Mayor to build a system that provides clear paths for parents of young children as they navigate those first years.
