2011-2012 Great Start Readiness Program: Program Quality Assessment: Statewide data report
High/Scope Educational Research Foundation, January, 2013
Lansing: Michigan, Department of Education.

The following report summarizes Great Start Readiness Program (GSRP) classroom quality data collected during the 2011 - 2012 program year. This data, for the first time, was reported and scored using HighScope's OnlinePQA system. The scores on Form A are based on outside observers (e.g., education specialists), and Form B on administrator reports. The information for Form A and Form B includes end of year data only. Scores on the preschool Program Quality Assessment (PQA) range from 1 to 5, with 1 representing low quality and 5 representing exceptional quality. A useful way to interpret the PQA is that scores less than 3 indicate low quality, scores between 3 and 4.49 indicate medium quality, and scores at or above 4.5 indicate high quality.

2012 Workforce Dataset: A review of workforce trends
Mayfield, Wayne A.,
Washington, DC: National Registry Alliance.

This report presents descriptive analyses on workforce trends in the 2012 National Registry Alliance Dataset, features an analysis examining the relationship of age with education level, and provides recommendations for registry functioning and policy development based on these findings. The 2012 National Registry Alliance Dataset consists of data from nine registries: Connecticut, Miami-Dade County (FL), Maine, Missouri, Montana, New Jersey, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming. These registries followed the Partnership Eligibility Review (PER) guidelines for data submission. The dataset represents active registry participants as of January 1, 2010, through March 1, 2012, and includes individual records from 58,398 professionals (49,740 of whom were currently employed) working across 12,050 programs/facilities. Given this report's primarily descriptive nature, the issues of saturation--the extent to which a specific registry captures all programs and workers in the field for a given geographic region--and representativeness of registry data are not addressed. Further work regarding saturation and representativeness of registry data will be forthcoming from the National Registry Alliance. (author abstract)

2013 National Early Childhood Education and Care Workforce Census
Social Research Centre (Melbourne, Vic.), May, 2014
Canberra, Australian Capital Territory, Australia: Australia, Department of Education.

The National Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) Workforce Census 2013 ('The National ECEC Workforce Census') was commissioned by the Department of Education ('the department') as part of a range of Australian Government initiatives designed to improve the quality of information used in developing and measuring early childhood policy and programmes. It is the latest in a series of large-scale collections which address information gaps in administrative data available from the Child Care Management System (CCMS). Predecessors include the National ECEC Workforce Census 2010, the Australian Government Census of Child Care Services (AGCCCS) and the 2008-09 Child Care Provider Survey (CCPS). Preschool services were included for the first time in the National ECEC Workforce Census in 2010. The National ECEC Workforce Census was developed specifically to address information gaps in existing administrative data sources, with respect to the ECEC workforce, participation in and provision of preschool programmes and children with additional needs in child care. National ECEC Workforce Census data will assist policy makers to better understand the challenges of providing quality child care and early learning, assess the capacity in the workforce to meet future demand and formulate strategies to support early childhood development policies.

Child Care Aware of Kentucky,
Lexington, KY: Child Care Aware of Kentucky.

A baseline Kentucky Early Care and Education Workforce Study was conducted in 2012, with plans to conduct biannual surveys to provide longitudinal data to the Division of Child Care. This study data will provide information about the child care workforce in the Commonwealth, including wages and benefits, retention and professional development. Findings are designed to inform both policy and quality improvement efforts. This report presents data from the Kentucky Early Care and Education Workforce study conducted in Fall of 2013, with data collection through February 2014. This survey targeted Directors of Licensed Type I and II child care centers, Family Child Care Home (FCC) providers, and teachers and teaching assistants, later exclusively referred to as teachers. The study focused on background, experience, education, professional development, wages, and benefits of the targeted participants. Surveys were disseminated via email, based on availability of valid email address and were also available for completion via an anonymous on-line link. A total of 303 certified family child care home providers received the survey with 71 (23%) completed. Another 1,576 surveys were sent out to directors of licensed child care centers with 434 (28%) returning a valid survey. A work force survey was also sent to 27,257 teachers and teacher assistants with 1,707 (8%) completing the survey. (author abstract)

2014 wage data for early childhood educators
American Federation of Teachers,
Washington, DC: American Federation of Teachers.

This OPRE research brief provides a comprehensive analysis of ECE data that goes beyond average wages, and it notes the importance of a strong ECE workforce, pointing to the National Academy of Sciences' 2012 assertion that "the nature and effects of ECE depend in large part on the adults who care for children" (p. 5). However, the report recognizes the need for more data. Its upcoming research brief is expected to address the attitudes, orientations, morale and mental health of the ECE workforce, in addition to providing more detail on the type of education and training the ECE workforce receives.

Abriendo Puertas: Opening doors to opportunity: A national evaluation of second-generation trainers
Bridges, Margaret, September, 2012
Berkeley: University of California, Berkeley, Institute of Human Development.

Abriendo Puertas/Opening Doors (AP/OD) is a comprehensive, 10-session parenting skills and advocacy program developed by and for low-income Latino parents with children ages 0 to 5. Drawing from the real-life experiences of Latino parents and local data about their schools and communities, sessions are filled with interactive activities that aim to develop parents' self-understanding as powerful agents of change to improve the lives of their children. This unique curriculum builds on participants' cultural strengths to transform the achievement gap into an opportunity to improve and enrich the lives of their children and families. Since its inception in 2007, Abriendo Puertas/Opening Doors has reached more than 22,000 families in 31 states and Puerto Rico. The program's unique, three-day Training-of-Trainers Institutes teach community educators, trainers, and leaders how to bring the 10-session AP/OD parenting program to their communities nationwide, and how to train others to do the same. Institute graduates conduct Institutes of their own, framing AP/OD's curriculum within local community realities, strengths and challenges, exponentially increasing the number of trainers across the country. To date, more than 40 training institutes have been conducted. Given AP/OD's recent national expansion, the evaluation outlined in this brief aims to provide evidence of the program's efficacy in addressing the needs of the large and growing Latino community when brought to scale. This brief presents findings from the evaluation of the programs conducted by second-generation trainers (those instructed via Training-of-Trainers Institutes), examining how--if at all--increases in parenting knowledge, skills, and confidence are associated with participation in the program.
