Model work standards for teaching staff in center-based child care


The Model Work Standards are divided into nine categories, including Wages and Benefits, Employment Policies and Practices, Professional Development, and more. These standards align with the “Policy Guidelines on the Promotion of Decent Work for Early Childhood Education Personnel” published by the International Labour Office (2014). In order to develop a plan for improving the work environment, teaching staff rank each standard individually as it applies to their child care program. Ranking is on a five-point scale based on these markers: 1 - Not Met 2 - In Planning Stage 3 - In Progress 4 - Near Completion 5 - Consistently Met. (author abstract)
