Conducting research and proposing policy solutions aimed at improving how our nation prepares, supports, and rewards the early care and education workforce since 1999.
CSCCE conducts research on the components of a supportive and rewarding work environment that are critical to attracting and retaining skilled, educated teachers and essential for high-quality services for young children. This work includes developing strategies to increase the compensation of ECE professionals and identifying policies and practices that promote: ongoing professional development and learning; teamwork and staff initiative; staff economic and physical well-being; and knowledgeable, supportive staff leadership.
