Developing a happy, healthy and sustainable early childhood workplace


By Tamara Cumming, Laura McFarland and Sandie Wong

Early childhood workplaces are unique. They are designed with children and families in mind but may not necessarily focus on those who actually work there. A conscious effort needs to be made to design or adapt workplaces so they also support educators, staff, leaders and their practice.

This Everyday Learning Series title explores why it is important to make early childhood workplaces happy, healthy and sustainable, and what the features of a positive work environment are.
