The early childhood education workforce in Louisiana: Findings from the 2018 Early Childhood Workforce Survey in Jefferson and Rapides parishes

It is particularly uncommon to have comparable information about early educators working across all three of the primary types of publicly-funded ECE settings: subsidized child care, Head Start, and school-based pre-kindergarten. To fill this gap, in the fall of 2018, a team at the University of Virginia (UVA), in partnership with the Early Childhood Office at the Louisiana Department of Education (LDOE), conducted a large workforce survey in two Louisiana parishes: Jefferson and Rapides. Jefferson and Rapides are the second and ninth largest parishes in Louisiana, respectively. They were selected for this "deep dive" into the early childhood workforce due to their diverse early childhood landscapes and commitment to improving the quality of early childhood education.
