- Teachers of early childhood education, work stress, workload
Stress at work is a psychological symptom that has been experienced by everyone, especially teachers. Teachers of Early Childhood Education (ECE) are objects that are prone to stress. In addition to the teacher’s function to teach, educate, guide, assess, direct, and evaluate students in teaching and learning activities, they also have responsibility for other job demands that often result in stress. This paper aims to describe the factors that cause the ECE teacher profession to experience stress at work. This study used a qualitative approach with data collection techniques carried out by exploring library research sources. The results of this study indicate that the workload, demands of the parents of students, educational background, work environment, dual roles played, time management, and self-management are among the triggers for stress on teachers. Therefore, it requires a mindfulness-based meditation, relaxation, therapy and training for teachers as a solution in overcoming the stress experienced by teachers in carrying out their profession.
