Resilience and Well-Being in Early Childhood

The goal of the Child in Time research project is to produce new perspectives for a holistic understanding of existential resilience in early childhood. The project offers tools to support children's well-being in the context of Finnish early childhood education.

The importance of resilience for well-being

In recent years, the corona pandemic, climate anxiety and war news have caused concern for children in Finland. Previous research has shown that resilience plays an important role in maintaining well-being in the midst of difficult life situations. The Child in Time research project tackles these themes by examining children's existential resilience and well-being in early childhood.
