Metadata[+] Show full item record
When studying early childhood programs, it is important to look at two areas of workforce statistics: job retention rates and compensation data (salary and benefits). Across the nation, the early childhood field experiences an annual turnover rate of 30%, which is quite high when compared to the 6.6% annual turnover rate among public school teachers.3 In Missouri, the MCCRC data indicate approximately 33% of the early childhood educators anticipate leaving the field within the next five years.
