This article is about the quality of life in the workplace of early childhood educators. It presents the results of a survey carried out in Quebec with 519 educators working in early childhood centres. In all, ve sources of work stress (Boyle, Borg, Falzon, & Baglioni, 1995), ve sources of psychological well-being (Dagenais-Desmarais, 2010), and one measure of autonomy (Gillet, Rosnet, & Vallerand, 2008) at work were considered. Overall, stress was shown to be rather low, while well-being and autonomy were shown to be rather high. Analyzed as a function of levels of experience, the results showed that the rst ve years at work are generally the time when stress rises and well-being falls. The results also showed that autonomy is strongly linked to psychological well-being. On a practical level, these results indicate that supervisors and trainers of early childhood educators should concentrate on the rst years of professional work as well as on the planning and the implementation of favourable conditions in the exercise of autonomy in the workplace.
