Child care decision-making

Resource Type: Fact Sheets & Briefs
Author(s): Ferguson, Daniel;
Date Issued: April, 2014
Publisher(s): Child Care & Early Education Research Connections
Description: Child care plays an important role in supporting families, from children's development to parents' employment. The complex process by which families find child care arrangements is informed by their preferences for features of care arrangements and constrained by such factors as availability, accessibility, affordability, and awareness of supply. A recent comprehensive literature review and accompanying webinar discuss research on multiple dimensions of the child care decision-making process, structured within the framework of a child care decision-making conceptual model. This Topic of Interest highlights that review, webinar, and conceptual model, as well as data sets, reports, journal articles, projects, and bibliographies from the Research Connections collection.
