The Early Childhood Workforce Initiative recently launched a series called Voices from the Field focused on elevating the voices of members of the early childhood workforce from around the world.
These articles highlight how the COVID-19 crisis has impacted those working in early childhood services across sectors. By capturing different voices of the early childhood workforce and sharing their perspectives, Voices from the Field gives insight into the challenges faced across the globe.
There is so much to learn from them. We hope you welcome this as an opportunity to appreciate and celebrate their resilience, care, commitment, and professionalism.
Stay tuned each week to hear from a member of the early childhood workforce.
