Abstract: This study explored the extent of ECC teachers participation in nursing tasks, the nature of working conditions, and the relationship between nursing participation, SES variables (such as age, income, education and working hours) and working conditions (including job satisfaction, burnout and smoking cessation behavior). 41 teachers from 10 day care centers in small towns in the southwest participated in the study. The results showed that teachers with a high level of nursing participation and job satisfaction. However, most teachers are dissatisfied with their current income level and show a moderate degree of burnout, but do not indicate that they intend to quit their current job. Correlation analysis shows that teachers job satisfaction is psitively related to their interaction with children and colleagues, resources, and training but negatively correlated to burnout and quitting behavior. Teachers’ burnout and quitting behavior were negatively correlated to their interaction with children and colleagues, resources, training, and income. While the desire to work with children had a significant impact on teachers’ job satisfaction and burnout, income and level of collegiality significantly predicted their quitting behavior.
