Children need to spend their most critical years with dedicated, educated, trained, and well-compensated individuals in order to thrive. The New York Early Childhood Professional Development Institute leads the work to establish and implement an early childhood workforce system to ensure funding, standards and competencies, career development resources, qualifications and credentials, professional development (training and strengths-based coaching), and program quality assurance and improvement for individuals who work with young children throughout New York. Housed at the City University of New York, the Institute is a fast-paced, dynamic public/private partnership that is committed to the early childhood workforce across New York State.
Well-educated and committed early childhood educators are one of the most valuable resources we can offer young children. They help children manage the negative forces of poverty, violence, and other toxic stressors. Healthy development depends on the quality and reliability of children's relationships with trusted adults. The mission of New York Works for Children is to positively influence outcomes for young children and families through the development of a skilled, knowledgeable, well-compensated, and committed early childhood education work force.
New York Works for Children is New York State's integrated professional development system for the early childhood and school age workforce. New York Works for Children is also the home of The Aspire Registry, New York's registry for early childhood professionals.
The Director of New York Works for Children is responsible for developing, implementing, managing, and promoting the statewide system that supports the early childhood workforce. This includes integration of the Aspire Registry, building a training approval system (including a calendar), and a wide range of initiatives to improve and expand workforce development policy and practice.
The Director leads a team of workforce development and data system managers and specialists to fulfill the project’s goals, meet stakeholder, end user, and funder requirements, and grow the system to respond to the needs of the early childhood workforce and stakeholders.
