The study of teacher stress is not a new area of research. However, most of the published research studies have been strongly oriented towards primary and secondary school teachers. Given that the teaching environment of kindergarten differs greatly from primary and secondary schools, this study sets out to examine the sources and manifestations of stress of Hong Kong female kindergarten teachers. Results suggest that Time Management and Work-related Stressors are more common sources of stress whereas feelings of Fatigue and Emotional related symptoms are more common manifestations of stress.
