This qualitative study explored teacher retention in early childhood classroom settings, focusing on job satisfaction, stressors in the workplace and factors that push early childhood educators out of the field. An open-ended online survey was completed by 38 early childhood educators throughout the state of Maine. Good management and being able to meet the needs of their students were found to be the most important factors which teachers’ feel influence their job satisfaction. Recommendations to promote educator retention include having adequate resources and support.
