More than 18,500 child-care providers nationwide in a recent year received scholarships to community colleges or universities through a program designed to improve child-care programs, and most of the recipients earned better pay and stayed in their jobs longer than workers who hadn’t received the scholarships.

Those findings are from the annual report of the Teacher Education and Compensation Helps, or T.E.A.C.H., Early Childhood Project, which began in 1990. The report is based on 2002-03 data that included scholarship recipients in 22 states. Ten percent of the recipients worked in federal Head Start programs.

The T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood Project is a program of the Child Care Services Association, a Chapel Hill, N.C.-based organization that works to improve the affordability, accessibility, and quality of child care.
