Staff turnover and retention among Head Start grant recipients that converted enrollment slots

Description:

Retention of Head Start staff is important to providing high-quality and developmentally appropriate early education and comprehensive services to young children and their families. Research suggests that high levels of staff turnover are associated with poorer-quality relationships between early childhood staff and young children (Philips, Austin, and Whitebook 2016). This brief describes the turnover rates of staff among Head Start grant recipients that converted enrollment slots from Head Start to Early Head Start. The brief also presents a summary of strategies grant recipients planned to address turnover and promote retention. (author abstract)
