Information for potential participants.

Preschool practitioners’ opinions on poverty across post-COVID-19 England and the USA’.

The research is being funded by The British Academy and the project team includes Donald Simpson at Teesside University, Eunice Lumsden at University of Northampton and Sandra Lyndon at the University of Chichester. Other academics are also administering the questionnaire in locations across The United States of America.

A link to a questionnaire can be found below. The link should open directly from this e-mail – if it does not then please cut and paste it into your web browser to access the questionnaire.

The central aim of this questionnaire is to identify pre-school practitioners’ attitudes regarding child poverty. The questions are mostly completed by ticking a box and they cover a range of issues related to this aim. There are no right and wrong answers – and it is expected practitioners may hold a range of views. The questionnaire will take no longer than 10 minutes to complete.

We hope that you will participate in this research project by following the link above to complete the questionnaire. All data will be confidential, and no names will be used in any publications based on it.

If you have any questions or would like further information please contact Dr Eunice Lumsden email:
