Preschool is fundamental to early childhood education and aids in the cognitive and social development of children before they enter kindergarten. The purpose of this study was to determine the extent to which the school’s climate and job satisfaction of the teachers played a part in teacher retention and how they overall felt about their job. The sample population consisted of 70 preschool teachers who worked in Davidson County.
Quantitative and qualitative approached were used to statistically analyze data from surveys, demographic questionnaire, and focus groups. The results showed significant findings between job satisfaction and organizational climate. Furthermore, there was evidence suggesting that most preschool teachers felt satisfied with their jobs.
