May 1st is recognized each year as National Early Educator Worthy Wage Day. On this day, early childhood professionals- and the organizations that support them- work together to inform the public about the importance of high quality early education. Despite the critical role they play in children’s lives, the early childhood workforce continues to be compensated poorly (the average professional earned around $20,000 in 2008). Join us today in honoring the early education professionals and programs in your community.
If you yourself are an early childhood professional, we honor you and thank you for the important work you do every day!
