WEBINAR: A Guide to Reform Using the New 2020 Early Childhood Workforce Index

We need long-term reform more than ever. During this global pandemic, most policymakers have hailed child care as essential while simultaneously failing to enact policies to support early educators themselves.

Join the Center for the Study of Child Care Employment and guest speakers tomorrow at 9am-10am PST/12pm-1pm EST to learn how to use the new 2020 Early Childhood Workforce Index. Take action to improve working conditions for early educators and strengthen our early care and education system for children and families.
