What does the Registry do for the early childhood field?

  • As a storehouse of information about teacher education and training, the Training Registry is a source of reports about the condition of the child care workforce. Group data, without individual names, provides reports about the educational achievements and educational needs of the community.
  • Reports produced allow for recognition of achievement, and support community-wide planning by accurately describing the early childhood education “career lattice” -the numbers of individuals at each level of education or certification.
  • For the Quality Counts Quality Rating Improvement System (QRIS) being implemented in Miami-Dade County, the individual training records of staff working in programs participating in QRIS will provide documentation that a program meets higher Star levels in the Staff Qualifications component.
  • Data from the Registry helps leaders and funders plan ways to meet training needs at all levels – from direct service with children, to trainers of teachers. The Registry portrays work with young children as a critical profession in our society, and helps professionalize the early care and education field.
