We at WECA have teamed up with the Public Policy Forum to conduct a statewide early childhood workforce study. The survey will examine the early childhood workforce in terms of wages, retention, education, benefits, and longevity. If you receive a survey in the mail, PLEASE consider filling it out (you can do it online as well) – your responses are completely anonymous and IMPORTANT! We plan to use the analysis to educate policymakers and the community on the state of the early childhood workforce, considering how it has changed over the years, and how the state can better meet your needs.
NOTE: During last week’s mailing process, the address lists were accidentally switched. Family child care providers and group center directors were sent the wrong version of the survey. The correct versions were mailed out today- please be on the lookout for them. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused and eagerly look forward to your responses.
