Work Environments That Support the Early Childhood Workforce
Erin Hamel
Dimensions of Early Childhood, v52 n1 p14-17 2024
Early childhood (EC) environments that are safe and engaging can positively influence developmental outcomes in children. Indeed, the benefits of a high-quality environment for young children are numerous (Kostelnik et al., 2019). The EC classroom is also the primary workplace of EC teachers and much like the children they serve, they can also benefit from high-quality environments that support their well-being and growth as professionals. This article explores the importance of the EC teachers' work environment and provides suggestions for program and center directors for evaluating and improving environmental work supports for teachers.
