    NAEYC supports research efforts and other initiatives from individuals and outside organizations that advance the early childhood profession and the young children it serves.  Hello's Code of Conduct requires that individuals who want to use Hello to disseminate surveys or recruit research/interview subjects need to have these requests approved by NAEYC. These requests should be submitted through this form and will be considered by NAEYC on a case-by-case basis. If approved, NAEYC will disseminate the research request or informational report through an appropriate NAEYC channel, which might include a NAEYC newsletter, HELLO or an interest forum. Following is an approved request.

    Hello! My name is Jennifer Chen, a proud member of NAEYC for many years. I am an associate professor at Kean University in New Jersey and am conducting a research study (approved by my University's Institutional Review Board) that would benefit from NAEYC members' participation. Thank you so much to those of you who have participated. I look forward to receiving more responses. If you would still like to offer your insights, please read the description below about the study and participate!  Thank you so much for your time and thought!

    Teaching during COVID-19 has imposed additional stress on teachers. I would like to invite early childhood teachers (teaching preschool to 3rd grade) throughout the United States to participate in an important study on factors related to their stress coping during the 2020-2021 school year amidst COVID-19. Participation involves completing a survey that will take about 10-15 minutes. All responses are completely anonymous. Your participation will help inform educational efforts on how best to support early childhood teachers in mitigating teaching-related stress. As a token of appreciation for your time, I invite you to enter a lottery for a chance to win one of 2 electronic Amazon gift cards ($50 each). To participate, please click the survey here or you have any questions, you can reach me at Thank you!
