Participate in a research study

Understanding educator’s experiences of sleep and rest times in Early Childhood Education and Care

Dear colleagues,

The Sleep in Early Childhood Research Group at Queensland University of Technology (QUT) is conducting a study into the educator’s experiences of sleep and rest in Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC). If this interests you, your participation will involve completing an online survey including questions on demographics, training and current employment in ECEC, sleep policies and practices, beliefs around sleep, and experiences of managing children’s sleep and rest needs within ECEC. It is hoped that this will contribute to the development of better resources around sleep and rest for the ECEC sector.

Educators and others working in Childcare, Kindergarten or any other Early Childhood Education and Care settings are invited to participate. If you choose to participate you can enter in a prize draw to win one of four $50 retail gift vouchers (full terms and conditions, are at the end of the survey).

Please note that this study has been approved by the QUT Human Research Ethics Committee (approval number 1500000595).
