About Us

Two Friends with a Tablet

The Consortium of Early Childhood Educators was born out of the necessity to develop solutions for the industry workforce crisis and to develop equity in the field of Early Education. We formed a workforce development sector to assess community needs. The Early Education Workforce Development Sector consists of community stakeholders and concerned organizations. Together we assessed the lack of quality staff available for the early education industry, and other areas of disparities in the Early Childhood Education community.


Next our founding Directors Committee continued to brainstorm and develop solutions to fruition. We developed an apprenticeship and internship program with a learning management system, to address the lack of a qualified workforce and strengthen centers of color.

We believe that early childhood education is the foundation for lifelong learning and success.

By investing in our children today, we are shaping the future for generations to come.
