Center for the Study of Child Care Employment

The Center for the Study of Child Care Employment (CSCCE) at the University of California-Berkeley is focused on achieving comprehensive public investments that enable the early childhood workforce to deliver high-quality care and education for all children. It conducts leading research and proposes policy solutions aimed at improving how the nation prepares, supports and rewards the early care and education workforce to ensure young children’s optimal development. 

Alliance-funded Support for State Advocacy

This year, CSCCE is collecting data and preparing analysis for the 2020 edition of the Early Childhood Workforce Index.

The Center is researching and disseminating policy analysis aimed at improving the preparation, support, and compensation of the ECE workforce in equitable ways. The work is primarily being shared through its blog, social media, presentations and webinars, and technical assistance in states.
