Characteristics of Infant Child Care: Factors Contributing to Positive Caregiving.
NICHD Early Child Care Research Network
Early Childhood Research Quarterly, v11 n3 p269-306 Sep 1996
Assessed settings and caregiver-infant interaction in five types of nonmaternal child care: day care centers; child care homes; in-home sitters; grandparents; and fathers. Found that small group sizes, low child-adult ratios, caregivers' nonauthoritarian child-rearing beliefs, and safe, clean, and stimulating physical environments were associated with positive caregiving regardless of setting.
