Early educators’ virtual training experiences and preferences during the COVID-19 pandemic: Findings from the District of Columbia Child Care Policy Research Partnership


This brief presents findings from a survey of early educators in the District of Columbia on their training needs and experiences during the pandemic. Data were collected in spring 2020, about one year after the pandemic hit, as part of the larger DC Child Care Policy Research Partnership Study with DC’s Office of the State Superintendent of Education (box 1). The survey set out to answer the following key questions on training: What were early educators’ virtual training experiences in the previous year? What was the level of participation over time? What topics were most common and when? On which topics do early educators feel like they need more training and support? What are early educators’ preferred methods for receiving training?
