Early educator voices: Oregon work environment conditions that impact early educator practice and program quality


In the winter of 2022, the Center for the Study of Child Care Employment (CSCCE) had the opportunity to ask early educators about their working conditions. We surveyed educators employed in both center- and home-based programs throughout the state of Oregon. Notably, this was the first CSCCE study utilizing the SEQUAL tool to capture the experiences of family child care (FCC) providers and their staff and also the first SEQUAL study to examine working conditions after the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. This report examines the results of the SEQUAL survey across settings and roles of early educators in Oregon and was commissioned by the Oregon Early Learning Division (ELD) in order to inform their quality improvement efforts.
