By Marcy Whitebook, Laura Sakai, Fran Kipnis, Yuna Lee, Dan Bellm, Mirella Almaraz, and Paulina Tran

In 2005, CSCCE and the California Child Care Resource and Referral Network, with funding from First 5 California and the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, conducted a statewide survey of California licensed child care workforce. This study identified the number of center-based and home-based staff working in licensed child care. The statewide survey was replicated in eight California counties.
