The pandemic’s effects on early educators’ employment and well-being: Findings from the District of Columbia Child Care Policy Research Partnership


This brief summarizes early educators’ experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic, including changes in employment and wages, supports they received, and challenges they faced. The findings come from a survey of early educators working in licensed child care facilities in the District of Columbia in early 2021. The survey is part of the larger DC Child Care Policy Research Partnership study with DC’s Office of the State Superintendent of Education. This brief is part of a series sharing other survey findings, including virtual training experiences during the pandemic, job satisfaction and workplace culture, and perspectives on DC’s new quality rating and improvement system.
