    In my study I researched work load and work engagement of day-care managers in Helsinki. This research is quantitative with 39 participants and query material was collected 2014. The work load was studied by means of questions, with the added bonus of two questions according to the Karasek job demands and control model of job demands and job opportunities for influence. Work engagement was studied by using work demand-work resources model translated in Finnish by Hakanen. Answers about open questions are elaborated with content analysis. In this study the biggest single work load factor was haste. It was reported the most often as a disadvantage factor for work load The research of the kindergarten managers job requirement factors, it can be said that when the job demands level increases, work engagement is reduced The higher the impact on the possibilities for the day-care center managers is, the higher they perceive the work engagement. Also open questions highlighted the haste, which forces to prioritize their work. It also reduces the leaders' possibilities to face the workers and to reduce the share of the pedagogical work. Prioritization also reflects the complexity of work experienced by managers and their limited opportunity to influence. One of the main reasons of this study was to find a day-care managers concrete tools to be able to cope with the work load. For the managers the most important way is the separation of work and leisure.
