Refuel and improve morale in early childhood.

Caregiver fatigue and low morale is a problem in many early care settings. Overcoming Teacher Burnout in Early Childhood focuses on the many reasons why early childhood professionals can suffer from low staff morale that causes such a high industry turnover rate. Included are ways to motivate and inspire yourself and others to view their work in a way that is healthy, intentional, and creates a high-quality early childhood environment. Personal stories from the field highlight how educators have themselves stayed motivated. The conversational style offers opportunities for self-reflection and group work. Practical steps help caregivers find ways to refuel and bump up morale, providing the energy needed to tackle long-term strategies.
