Child Trends
The Maryland-Minnesota Child Care Research Partnership brought together two states committed to examining critical issues in early care and education and using research findings to inform policy with an interdisciplinary team of researchers experienced in conducting studies on (1) subsidy policy; (2) quality improvement strategies; and (3) parental decision making. This brief provides responses from parents of young children who were asked their views on what is important to the overall quality of a child care arrangement. Respondents were asked to think about their overall "idea" of quality and what quality meant to them rather than what they do or are presented with in practice, and to consider constructs of quality that are emerging in QRIS standards and quality improvement strategies. The findings and implications are included.
