Are Higher Subsidy Payment Rates and Provider-Friendly Payment Policies Associated with Child Care Quality?
|Resource Type:||Administration for Children and Families/OPRE Projects|
|Principal Investigator(s):||Derrick-Mills, Teresa; Isaacs, Julia B.; Greenberg, Erica;|
|Description:||The goal of this project is to provide policy makers and the research community with useful information on whether subsidy payment rates and the adoption of various payment practices and policies is associated with the quality of child care centers and homes attended by children receiving child care subsidies. Literature to date has primarily examined whether child care subsidies are associated with child care quality and stability, but little is known about the extent to which payment policies and practices, which vary across states, can mediate the relationship between subsidy receipt and quality of care. This study combines data on payment rates and practices, drawn largely from the Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) Policies Database, with a variety of quality indicators available in the 2012 National Survey of Early Care and Education (NSECE).|
