South Carolina early care & education workforce study report 2018


Knowledge of the SC ECE workforce is essential to understanding the impact of ECE initiatives, policies, and practices on children and child outcomes. Therefore, through funding from the Division of Early Care and Education (DECE) at South Carolina Department of Social Services (SCDSS), the administrator for the federal Child Care Development Fund (CCDF), SC Endeavors (formerly the South Carolina Center for Child Care Career Development) and Yvonne & Schuyler Moore Child Development Research Center (CDRC) at the University of South Carolina conducted a statewide survey of the early care and education workforce. This study is the first of its kind in South Carolina including responses from individuals who work directly in classrooms with young children across varied sectors. Building on the previous SC ECE workforce study (Marsh, 2001), the goal of this study was to learn more about characteristics of the ECE workforce, ECE facilities where they work, the working conditions of their employment and their attitudes and dispositions about their work.
