The study investigated the influence of occupational factors on job involvement of Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) teachers in urban area of Dharwad. A sample of 120 ECCE teachers from government and private schools were randomly selected. Differential research design was used to know the difference between job involvement and selected occupational characteristics of teachers.  Job involvement scale by Reeve and Smith (2001) was used to assess the job involvement and job stress was measured by job stress scale by Cousin (2004) and general information schedule was used to gather basic information and occupational characteristics of respondents. The results of the study revealed that majority (65.00 %) of Anganawadi teachers had moderate level of job involvement, while 66.70 per cent of private teachers were most of the time involved in their job. A significant association and difference was found between job involvement and selected occupational factors.
