The importance of financial supports for child care teachers: Findings from year 3 of Virginia’s recognition program


In this brief, we describe the impact of the RB5 incentives in 2021-2022 on each of these three areas: teachers’ senses of feeling appreciated in their job, financial well-being, and retention. This brief uses survey data from over 3,900 Virginia child care center and family day home teachers who participated in the third year (2021-2022) of the RB5 program, a period characterized by serious child care staffing challenges. Using survey responses from nearly 500 child care leaders of sites that employed RB5 participants (50% of all RB5- participating sites), we also share leaders’ perspectives on how RB5 affected teachers and their sites’ staffing challenges.
