Child care choices of low-income, immigrant families with young children: Findings from the National Survey of Early Care and Education

Resource Type: Reports & Papers
Author(s): Sandstrom, Heather; Gelatt, Julia;
Date Issued: November, 2017
Publisher(s): Urban Institute
Description: In this brief, we explore differences in the child care settings foreign-born, US-born, LEP, and English-proficient parents select for their young children. We also explore differences in their child care preferences and perceptions and in the household characteristics that might explain their patterns. In this way, we shed light on how being an immigrant and having limited English proficiency, among other factors, might influence parents' interest in and ability to access different child care.
