Resilience in the field of education has emerged as an important area of research. High demands of the teaching job may affect levels of wellbeing, and health. The current study contributes to the research on resilience by examining the relationship between individual and contextual resources in preschool educators in Tarapacá, Chile. This cross-sectional study examined resiliency, stress, educational environment, and emotional competence among 154 preschool educators in Tarapacá, Chile. The study questionnaire consisted of five parts, including demographic data, Resiliency scale (SV-Res), Stress Perception Questionnaire, Early Childhood Environmental Rating Scale, and Emotional Competence Inventory for Adults (ICEA). Multiple regression analyses were performed to identify predictors of resiliency. Average age of participants was 37.97 (SD 8.496). Regression analyses indicated that emotional competencies contribute positively and to a greater degree in predicting resilience while stress does so negatively. These variables explain around 46% of the resilience in educators.This is the first study among preschool educators in Chile that examined the impact of individual and context variables in the resiliency levels. The present study provides useful and practical implications for promoting resilience in preschool educators. It is essential to focus on improving resilience levels through protective factors, and should be provided within the school context successful promotion of emotional competences.
