2014 child care workforce study: Executive summary

A baseline Kentucky Early Care and Education Workforce Study was conducted in 2012, with plans to conduct biannual surveys to provide longitudinal data to the Division of Child Care. This study data will provide information about the child care workforce in the Commonwealth, including wages and benefits, retention and professional development. Findings are designed to inform both policy and quality improvement efforts. This report presents data from the Kentucky Early Care and Education Workforce study conducted in Fall of 2013, with data collection through February 2014. This survey targeted Directors of Licensed Type I and II child care centers, Family Child Care Home (FCC) providers, and teachers and teaching assistants, later exclusively referred to as teachers. The study focused on background, experience, education, professional development, wages, and benefits of the targeted participants. Surveys were disseminated via email, based on availability of valid email address and were also available for completion via an anonymous on-line link. A total of 303 certified family child care home providers received the survey with 71 (23%) completed. Another 1,576 surveys were sent out to directors of licensed child care centers with 434 (28%) returning a valid survey. A work force survey was also sent to 27,257 teachers and teacher assistants with 1,707 (8%) completing the survey. (author abstract)
