Interventions in nurseries and pre-schools to improve psychosocial working conditions

Nursery nurses/kindergarten teachers and assistants have a relatively high average sick leave at 16-18 days a year. Absenteeism has increased in recent years, and pre-school teachers and assistants now have the highest risk of long-term sickness absence compared with all other job groups in Denmark. Therefore, there is a need for a research based investigation into the causes and the ability to prevent the high sick leave in nurseries and day care centres.

 The purpose of this research project is to investigate whether systematic process supported initiatives with focus on better execution of its core work tasks can

  • improve the psychosocial work
  • reduce number of sick days
  • increase the quality of service.

The project is conducted in nurseries and pre-school centres and has particular focus on groups especially at risk of physical and mental disabilities. An additional goal of this project is to increase the research-based knowledge about this area.

Please contact Senior Researcher Ole H. Sørensen for further information on the research project.
