Cradle And Career: What Can Workforce Development Learn From Early Childhood Development And Care?


On October 2, 2019, ParentChild+ hosted another installment of the School Readiness Forum: An exploration of new ideas to close the K-12 Achievement Gap.

For some time, early childhood education and care has been at the forefront of the interdependency between generations—acknowledging that in order to create stable lives for children, the adults in their lives need support as well. The field of workforce development can learn from this approach. While workforce development interventions sometimes acknowledge the importance of child care, as a means to free up parents to train and work, they could go further in supporting the interdependencies of children and their caregivers.

More holistic two-generation approaches not only can improve short-term outcomes for children and their parents, but can also prepare the next generation of workers.
