The Early Childhood Education Workforce: Vital and in Distress

  • Early childhood education should be regarded as a professional sector in both perception and reality in terms of pay, leadership and connection to resources
  • Educators need to feel valued in pay, how they are seen in our communities and access to pathways for a career
  • Federal investments provide an opportunity to innovate across the entire system and transform the sector so it works better for providers, workers and parents, because there is no single solution
