This report provides a closer look at the well-being of California's early educators during the COVID-19 public health crisis, using data collected from the 2020 California Early Care and Education Workforce Study. Key findings show that educators' low wages leave them vulnerable to financial shocks; that many child care providers rely on public assistance and suffer from food insecurity; that early educators working in programs with stable subsidized funding weathered the pandemic better, and more.
