This study examined the differences in stress perception in a sample of childhood education lecturers in Nigerian Tertiary Institutions by gender. Forty (40) childhood education lecturers across public colleges of education and universities were conveniently sampled for this descriptive survey study. A questionnaire measuring stress perception was used for collecting the research data. Mean, standard deviation and unpaired t-test were used for data collection. Results show that the stress score of the female lecturers was significantly higher than that of the male lecturers in childhood education. Therefore, there is a need for stress management programme among these female lecturers.
