The effects of COVID-19 on Oregon’s early care & education workforce and programs


Drawing on prior work done by the ELD’s Research-to-Practice Partnership with OSLC Developments Incorporated, Portland State University, and Oregon State University, the ELD COVID-19 Early Educator Survey was conducted in March 2021 to provide information about: 1. Whether programs were able to provide any services to children and families during the pandemic and what types of services they were able to provide, 2. The extent of closures of programs (both temporary and permanent) and unemployment in early educators, 3. Whether closures and unemployment had disproportionately affected different types of programs and different early educator job positions, 4. The extent to which early educators had utilized various sources of funding during the pandemic and whether such funding had been helpful in allowing programs to remain open or reopen, 5. What early educators named as potential supports to help them remain open or reopen or remain in the ECE workforce and what they cited as potential barriers to these processes. (author abstract)
