The Habitat of Family Child Care Providers: The Influences of Caregiver, Contextual and Group Characteristics on Quality Care

Resource Type: Administration for Children and Families/OPRE Projects
Principal Investigator(s): Weaver, Ruth Harding; Bretherton, Inge;
Date Issued: 2000
Description: A study of 67 licensed family child care providers, examining the unique and combined influences of factors, including education and training, psychological well-being, adult attachment style, commitment to care, and social support, that may promote or undermine quality caregiving. Guided by an ecological model, the study explores links between determinants of caregiver behavior and quality of care, hypothesizing that quality is influenced not only by the process and structural components of child care environments, but also by the personal and supportive characteristics of caregivers.
