Early years staff wellbeing – Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families

Quick Navigation

Jun 9 2022

Early years staff love their work, but it can be emotionally demanding and stressful. For Infant Mental Health Awareness Week, it's important to remember that staff wellbeing needs to lie at the heart of nursery settings.  This resource identifies four key areas that could make a difference to the wellbeing of nursery and preschool staff:

  1. Supporting each other
  2. Supportive management
  3. The physical environment
  4. Outside support

The resource was informed from the findings of a survey of 1,458 staff working in nurseries and preschool settings across England and was produced in partnership with a number of local authorities including Bury Council, Norfolk County Council, Salford City Council, Tameside Borough Council, and the London Borough of Hackney, along with the National Day Nurseries Association.
