Prices reported by center-based early care and education providers: Associations with indicators of quality [Executive summary]

This report uses an integrated set of nationally representative surveys of center-based ECE providers and center-based ECE workforce members—the 2012 National Survey of Early Care and Education (NSECE)—to identify the relationship between the quality and reported price of child care in the United States. Although the NSECE did not collect observations to assess the quality of child care centers, it did include measures of quality indicators, or factors that researchers and/or best practices have identified as contributors to high-quality care (Madill et al., 2015). These quality indicators occur at the center, classroom, and teacher levels. Indicators at the classroom and teacher levels were measured in one randomly selected classroom for each center. As such, the indicators at this level may not necessarily reflect all classrooms or teachers serving each specified age group for the center at large. (author abstract)
