Unifying Framework for the Early Childhood Profession

Join the Power to the Profession Task Force, either in person or online, on March 9 to learn about the Unifying Framework as professionals come together to build a movement to advance a unified, diverse, equitable, and effective early childhood education profession.

About

Power to the Profession is a national collaboration to define the early childhood profession by establishing a unifying framework for career pathways, knowledge, competencies, qualifications, standards, and compensation. Informed by community input and feedback, the Power to the Profession Task Force has reached a consensus on a shared framework to advance the early childhood education profession.

Join the Task Force in person or online on March 9 to celebrate the profession’s shared commitment and the release of the “Unifying Framework for Early Childhood Educators” and the “Professional Standards and Competencies for Early Childhood Educators.” If joining by live stream, consider organizing a watch party with your fellow early childhood educators and allies!

Power to the Profession Task Force Seeks Feedback

The Power to the Profession (P2P) National Task Force recently shared their next decision cycle draft, encouraging review and response. These Decision Cycles address the resources, infrastructure, and accountability structures needed across states and systems to support a prepared, diverse, well-compensated early childhood education profession. The draft is available in English and Spanish.

About the Task Force

The Power to the Profession (P2P) Task Force, in collaboration with thousands of educators, individual stakeholders, and partner organizations, is working toward a bold and audacious vision for a unified early childhood education profession. This profession will have clear roles and responsibilities, professional cohesion, and commensurate compensation. This will ensure every child, beginning at birth, has the opportunity to benefit from high-quality early childhood education, delivered by an effective, diverse, well-prepared, and well-compensated workforce.
