Research shows that a child's healthy growth and development hinges on high-quality and consistent caregivers and teachers. This demands a stable, highly skilled, and qualified workforce. In response to the science, the federal Head Start program and a growing number of states now require early learning professionals, especially lead teachers, to have a college degree. The author of this article presents EarlyEdU Alliance, a collection of courses and online tools led by the University of Washington and used by more than 50 colleges and universities, which aims to increase the quality of early childhood teacher preparation programs and make them more accessible and affordable for a workforce that needs more people and requires more of them.
