NEWS: What has the Initiative been up to in 2018?
The Early Childhood Workforce Initiative is a Hub for the most relevant resources on the early childhood workforce, which consists of the volunteers, paraprofessionals, and professionals who promote the healthy growth, development, and learning of young children.
In addition to providing a Knowledge Hub comprised of more than 200 resources, the Initiative conducts rigorous research that provides a better understanding of the workforce, as well as their challenges and opportunities. Resources, such as our Landscape Analyses and Country Studies, offer actionable policy recommendations for supporting a quality workforce at scale. These along with our webinars have added to a growing body of work surrounding the early childhood workforce. See what we’ve produced in 2018:
