Survey of Salaries, Benefits, Working Conditions, Income Sources and Costs in Licensed Child Care Centers.
Vermont State Dept. of Social and Rehabilitative Services, Waterbury. Child Care Services Div.
In the summer of 1989, a survey of salary, benefits, and working conditions in Vermont's licensed child care centers was conducted. Data were collected with the amended Child Care Employee Project of California survey instrument. A total of 131 programs at 135 facilities responded, producing a response rate of 40.4 percent. The data analysis covers only the 94 centers reporting that they were open more than 48 weeks a year. These centers employ 640 staff caring for 2,914 children. This represents about one-third off all children cared for in licensed child care centers in Vermont. Sections of the report concern characteristics of reporting child care centers, wages, working conditions and benefits, staffing and turnover, reasons for staff turnover, miscellaneous findings, training needs, and responses to open-ended questions about centers' most pressing problems.
