2021 Early Childhood Workforce Needs Assessment Survey

The Workforce Development Advisory Group conducted an annual statewide needs assessment in the Fall of 2021 to determine the training needs and interests of child care providers in Kansas.

Thank you so much for lending your voice to this important data collection effort!

What happened to the collected information?

Now that the survey period has closed, results are being analyzed and compiled to showcase key findings. These findings will be shared with early childhood system partners and stakeholders across the state of Kansas.

Results will also be available electronically for you to review, but you may also request specific data using the button below.

In early 2022, focus groups will be held across the state to meet with providers for an in-depth exploration of the survey’s key findings. These focus groups will add context to the key findings and provide valuable information for early childhood system partners and stakeholders as they work to create or adapt existing services to better meet your needs as an early childhood professional.
