VASCONCELOS, Dalila Castelliano de; SANTANA, Inayara Oliveira de  and  BORGES, Lucivanda Cavalcante. The educator's work in a daycare center: a systematic Review. Psicol. educ. [online]. 2015, n.40, pp. 77-85. ISSN 1414-6975.

This research aims at a systematic review of the Brazilian production over the relationship between the organization of the educator's work in the daycare center and mental health. Research in the databases Lilacs, PEPsic and Periódicos Capes was realized through the indexes "work and daycare center", "work and educator", and "organization and daycare center". Articles published in the last ten years in the Brazilian context, and with an open and complete access in the researched databases, were included. Such articles were analyzed as of the categories "author", "objective", "location", "participants", "instruments" and "results". It was concluded, generally, that the studies make an approach to the educator's work in a daycare center in areas such as speech therapy, physiotherapy and infant psychology, in connection with some physical aspects of work or infant development. Few studies make a relationship between the characteristics of work and the worker's mental health. Furthermore, the studies comprehended only the contexts of the Southern and Southeastern regions of the country.

Keywords : daycare center's educator; organization of work; worker's health.
