Boyd, Brenda J.; Schneider, Nancy I.
Journal of Research in Childhood Education, v11 n2 p171-80 Spr-Sum 1997
Used the Maslach Burnout Inventory and Early Childhood Work Environment Survey to identify workplace predictors of burnout in 137 female child-care providers in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Found that age, decision making, and goal consensus were the only significant predictors of burnout, suggesting the need to balance the freedom of persons to make decisions and a shared vision of program goals.
