Organizational climate: Collegiality and supervisor support in early childhood education programs
In the current study, collegiality, defined as social interactions and belongingness among teachers, and supervisor support, defined as teachers' perceptions of leadership and support, are explored. To examine these two dimensions of organizational climate in early care and education work environments, the Teacher Satisfaction Inventory (Cassidy, Teacher Satisfaction Inventory (TSI), 2016) was completed by 48 teachers in child care centers across one southeastern state. Teachers rated 16 items focused on collegiality and 13 items related to supervisor support from 1 to 4 using a Likert-type scale focused on occurrence in their work setting. (author abstract)
