Marcy Whitebook, Ph.D. established the Center for the Study of Child Care Employment in 1999, as a researcher focusing on issues of employment in settings for young children, the relationship between good jobs and the quality of services available to children and families, and appropriate and accessible professional preparation for teachers. Whitebrook and her peers wrote Worthy Work, Unlivable Wages – The National Child Care Staffing Study and have continued to study Child Care Employment in it’s subsequent years.
