Study Summary

The WELL program is a multi-strategy early childhood education (ECE) center-based intervention focused on ensuring that formal ECE providers prioritize their own self-care and well-being and have access to resources and supports that improve their skills to have stable and responsive relationships with young children in their care. The overarching goals of this proposed project include: To utilize Head Start-University partnerships to investigate constructs within the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) Worker Wellbeing framework (e.g., Workplace Physical Environment and Safety Climate, Workplace Policies and Culture) among Head Start staff (n=360 Head Start staff) that are most associated with overall well-being. To adapt and refine the WELL program to target specific constructs that are most significantly related to overall well-being among the ECE workforce identified in Aim 1 and then to test the effectiveness of WELL (n=36 Head Start centers; n=360 Head Start staff). To collect data to inform the implementation and dissemination of the WELL project research findings and products and initiate translation activities to achieve large-scale adoption.
