Quality in Family Child Care Networks: An Evaluation of All Our Kin Provider Quality
Porter, Toni; Reiman, Kayla; Nelson, Christina; Sager, Jessica; Wagner, Janna
ZERO TO THREE, v36 n4 p19-29 Mar 2016
This article presents findings from a quasi-experimental evaluation of quality with a sample of 28 family child care providers in the All Our Kin Family Child Care Network, a staffed family child care network which offers a range of services including relationship-based intensive consultation, and 20 family child care providers who had no affiliation with All Our Kin. The All Our Kin Network providers had significantly higher scores on a measure of global quality and on a measure of adult-child interactions than the comparison group. The results suggest that network participation contributes to improved family child care quality and have implications for future quality improvement efforts.
