The correlation between the levels of burnout reported and participants’ demographic data were also examined. Research data revealed that kindergarten teachers experience slightly more feelings of emotional exhaustion, whereas childcare workers experience more feelings of depersonalisation. Furthermore, correlation analysis indicated that subscales predict one another whereas only personal accomplishment subscale had been found to be correlated with participants’ demographic data. Suggestions for future research are formulated.
