Abstract: The MCCRC's study on levels of teacher education is presented. The education level of early childhood teachers in Missouri is quite low. Approximately 31% of the teachers had a high school degree or less and another 30% had some type of education/training beyond high school but the education/training did not matriculate to a degree or certificate. A small percentage of teachers (22%) reported having a one- or two-year certificate/degree in child development. The last group, 16% of the sample, were teachers with at least a bachelor's degree. Several findings, related to teacher education, were associated to the licensing status of the program or the type of early childhood program.
