Early educators’ work experiences and job satisfaction: Findings from the District of Columbia Child Care Policy Research Partnership


This brief shares findings from a survey of early educators working in child care facilities in the District of Columbia in 2021. The survey is part of the larger DC Child Care Policy Research Partnership with DC’s Office of the State Superintendent of Education (box 1). The brief summarizes early educators’ perspectives on various features of their programs and leadership, their job satisfaction, and their turnover intentions. The brief is part of a series sharing other survey findings, including effects of the pandemic on employment and well-being, virtual training experiences during the pandemic, and perspectives on DC’s new quality rating and improvement system (QRIS), Capital Quality. All survey respondents worked in Capital Quality–rated child care facilities. (author abstract)
