Child Care WAGE$ provides incentives to early childhood professionals to increase teacher education levels and decrease turnover.
This service helps increase compensation, retention and education.
WAGE$ is administered by the Child Care Services Association.
In 1990, Child Care Services Association created the Teacher Education and Compensation Helps (T.E.A.C.H.)
