Staff working in early learning and care love working with children and families, but it can be emotionally demanding and stressful. Even the most skilled and experienced educators, as well as other staff such as drivers and cooks, can find their role challenging. To avoid staff members feeling overwhelmed, to buffer any stress they might be feeling and to build their resilience, it is important that early learning and care settings engage in team wellbeing. This means creating lasting strategies to help prevent burnout and finding ways to resource and replenish the whole team.
