Childhood Workforce Systems Initiative


May 2013

The Early Childhood Workforce Systems Initiative’s purpose is to assist states in developing, enhancing and implementing policies for an integrated early childhood professional development system for all early childhood education professionals working with and on behalf of young children.

Integrated policies intentionally promote the building and support of an efficient cross-sector system that decreases duplication of efforts and increases accountability and sustainability. An integrated system helps develop and retain a competent and stable early childhood workforce—a skilled cadre of effective, diverse and adequately compensated professionals.
