Child care workforce study: Executive summary

From May - June 2012 an early care and education work force survey was conducted in Kentucky. This survey focused on background, experience, education, professional development, wages, and benefits of this population. Surveys were sent to center directors, teachers and teacher assistants, and family child care homes. The goal was to provide a description of the child care workforce, including wages and benefits, retention and professional development. Findings are designed to inform both policy and quality improvement efforts. Surveys were disseminated via email and mail, based on availability of a valid email address for each population. A total of 550 certified family child care home providers received the survey with 66 (12%) completed. Another 1789 surveys were sent out to directors of licensed child care centers with 259 (15%) returning a valid survey. A work force survey was also sent to 31,116 teachers and teacher assistants with 1,184 (4%) completing the survey. (author abstract)
