Wellesley Child Care Research Partnership

Resource Type: Administration for Children and Families/OPRE Projects
Principal Investigator(s): Witte, Ann D.; Queralt, Magaly;
Date Issued: 1997
Description: A partnership formed to generate new knowledge to help guide the development of child care delivery systems that are more efficient, effective, and responsive to the needs of low-income families and their children. The partnership employs a dual focus on family self-sufficiency and on the quality of care received by children. To ensure that results provide accurate, consistent, and structured policy guidance, the researchers employ a carefully developed conceptual framework that incorporates child care and welfare policies, family child care choices, provider choices, and family and child care outcomes. Based on the conceptual framework, partnership researchers estimate empirical models to answer policy questions. Empirical measures come from a variety of Federal, State and local databases.
