Thank you to the Virginia Early Childhood Foundation for their work in learning more about the early childhood workforce in our state. Understanding the current workforce helps us to develop more streamlined and connected pathways for the future early childhood workforce pipeline.

The whole report can be found on the Virginia Early Childhood Foundation website here. Find the Executive Summary here.
