District of Columbia Child Care Policy Research Partnership study: Early care and education workforce survey


The purpose of the survey was to examine the perspectives of early educators working in licensed child development centers and homes that participate in Capital Quality (box 1). The survey gathered information on pressing issues related to their work, including their knowledge of and experiences with Capital Quality, their training needs, and more sensitive questions related to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on their employment, physical and mental health, and economic well-being. Facilities that participate in Capital Quality include those who receive child care subsidies (required participants), as well as some volunteer participants that do not receive subsidies. All early educators working in licensed child development facilities in the District that participate in Capital Quality and had active accounts in a contracted online learning platform used in the District (Quorum e-Learning) were invited to participate in this voluntary, web-based survey in spring 2021.
