A qualitative evaluation of a program to support family, friend, and neighbor caregivers
Maher, Erin J., April, 2008
NHSA Dialog, 11(2), 69-89

The early care and education field lacks an evidence base of effective programs to support caregiving quality among family, friend, and neighbor, or unlicensed, caregivers. This article presents the results of a qualitative evaluation of a program implemented with 20 primarily low-income English-and Spanish-speaking grandparents providing childcare for infants and toddlers. Our findings demonstrate the perceived impact of the program, the correspondence with outcomes in support of children's social and emotional development, and the program's feasibility for use with this population.
