Research Connections Canada: Supporting Children and Families, Number 9.
Lowe, Elaine, Ed.
Serving as a vehicle for raising the profile of and thereby gaining recognition for the important research and development work being conducted in Canada in support of children and families, the "Research Connections Canada" series compiles research and/or development papers as well as background papers, analytical literature reviews, and essays. This issue of the series focuses on quality in family child care settings. The two articles are as follows: (1) "Stakeholder Views on Quality in Family Child Care: Family Child Care Training Project: Supporting Early Childhood Development, Learning and Care in Family Child Care Settings" (Gillian Doherty), exploring the vision of quality in the context of family child care as described by a variety of stakeholders including training, credentialing, and accreditation programs, and Canadian society as a whole; and (2) "Quality through Trust: Case Studies of Outreach to Unregulated Family Child Care Providers across Canada" (Andrew Taylor, Lee Dunster, and Jocelyne Tougas), summarizing eight case studies conducted with organizations attempting to contact unregulated family child care providers to offer support. Both articles contain references. (HTH)
