Supporting the early childhood workforce in light of the pandemic

The Early Childhood Workforce Initiative, co-chaired by R4D and the International Step by Step Association, recently released a statement identifying five priority actions to protect, support, and strengthen the workforce in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Initiative has also partnered with UNESCO, UNICEF, the Asia-Pacific Regional Network for Early Childhood (ARNEC), and the International Step by Step Association to design a survey for early childhood education center managers, heads of pre-primary/preschool, ECE teachers and practitioners to understand their current situation, and contribute to the development of practical solutions, policy recommendations, and advocacy efforts on their behalf.
