Table 7. Average vacancy and staff turnover rates in New York State day care centers (excluding NYC day care centers). Source: Early Care and Education Workforce Study, 2008.

aSample size (n) is the number of day care centers responding to questions regarding each staff position. Day care centers reported the number of current vacancies for each position. Each center’s current vacancy rate for each staff position was calculated as the number of current vacancies divided by the sum of the number of current vacancies plus the number of current staff. Then, an average vacancy rate for each staff position was calculated by averaging all of the individual vacancy rates for day care centers. cFor each day care center with staff in a given position, the number of staff that left in the last 12 months was divided by the current number of staff in that position to arrive at a turnover rate for each center. Then, an average was taken of those turnover rates for all day care centers with staff b

in a given position, including those that had a turnover rate of zero.

Staff turnover rates vary by region across the state (see Table 8).

Family Day Care and Group Family Day Care Providers In order to assess turnover among family day care and group family day care providers, the survey asked family day care and group family day care providers to report how much longer they intend to provide child care in their homes (see Table 9). The most common response was that they were not sure. A higher percentage of group family day care providers than family day care providers reported that they intended to continue providing care for over ten years. Family day care providers reported that they had been caring for children in their homes for 12 years on average, while group family day care providers reported that they had been caring for children in their homes for ten

years on average. 22
