Description

Measuring Work Attitudes in the Early Childhood Setting provides a framework for understanding and evaluating early childhood environments from the perspective of the adults who work in those environments. It is intended for early childhood administrators who are looking for practical ways to improve the quality of work life for their staff and for researchers interested in conducting scholarly investigations of job satisfaction and the organizational climate of early childhood programs.

Measuring Work Attitudes in the Early Childhood Setting introduces the reader to two assessments, the Early Childhood Job Satisfaction Survey (ECJSS) and the Early Childhood Work Environment Survey (ECWES). Technical information on the development of the instruments, data on reliability and validity, and national norms are presented as well as examples of practical and scholarly applications. The book concludes with a chapter about organizational change and lessons learned from different intervention initiatives.

    “Supportive and rewarding work environments enable programs to attract and retain skilled and educated teachers and are essential to efforts to improve and sustain program quality. Measuring Work Attitudes in the Early Childhood Setting provides concrete strategies for any director, new or seasoned, seeking to make changes. Paula Jorde Bloom reminds us, as she has for decades, that high-quality environments for teachers make possible high-quality environments for children.”
