My name is Joanne McHale and I am a doctoral student at UCL Institute of Education in London studying gender in the early childhood workforce in Ireland and I invite you to take part in a survey as a parent of children attending preschool or creche.
The aim of this survey is to explore how parents view the roles of men and women in relation to early childhood education and care services. This information will be used to inform the early childhood sector on the roles and capabilities of male and female workers and will form part of my doctoral thesis. All information is anonymous (you are not asked for any identifying information) and will be treated in the strictest confidence. This survey should take no longer than 15 minutes to complete.
Any queries or requests for further information about this survey can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org
