The early years, when children’s brains experience significant growth and development, lay the foundation for future educational success. The early childhood educators who care for young children play a critical role in supporting that early learning and development.
The child care system, already a fragile system before the pandemic, has faced incredible financial and staffing challenges since 2020 – which have been exacerbated by the recent expiration of pandemic-relief funding directed at early learning.
This virtual event, hosted by The Campaign for Grade-Level Reading will discuss strategies to link early educator professional competencies with professional compensation; reduce barriers for low-income early childhood educators and educators of color; incorporate anti-bias, anti-racist strategies into existing early childhood educator development programs; and promote a strong pipeline of trained and talented early childhood educators. Panelists include…
- Cathrine Aasen Floyd, Ph.D., Director of Ideal Learning Initiatives, Trust for Learning
- Rebecca E. Gomez, Ed.D., Program Officer, Education, Heising-Simons Foundation
- Jacqueline Jones, Ph.D., former President & CEO, Foundation for Child Development, Moderator
