ECWI launches additional translated resources

Despite growing recognition of the workforce as central to the quality of early childhood services, the environment for these professionals and paraprofessionals remains poor. Challenging working conditions, such as low remuneration, heavy workloads, and economic instability, make it difficult for early childhood personnel to foster positive relationships and adequately support children's holistic development in the early years.

Today, the Early Childhood Workforce Initiative (ECWI) shares English, Spanish, and French versions of the briefs entitled Strengthening and Supporting the Early Childhood Workforce: Working Conditions and Strengthening and Supporting the Early Childhood Workforce: Continuous Quality Improvement.

These briefs highlight findings from two landscape analyses, which are part of the Initiative's global landscape analyses series. These resources aim to illustrate the size and scope of the challenges faced by the early childhood workforce, highlight promising practices to address these challenges, and provide a comprehensive overview of the status of the workforce worldwide. Policymakers, researchers, program managers, and practitioners can use findings to generate lessons to support and strengthen the early childhood workforce and enhance existing programs, policies, research, and advocacy efforts.
