The Ecological Context of In-Home Nonrelative Child Care.
Monroe, Lisa; Dunn, Loraine
Early Child Development and Care, v157 p7-26 Oct 1999
Surveyed in-home child caregivers and employers about their child care environments. Found that the caregivers were mostly young, well-educated, hard-working, committed; typically, they showed child-related coursework in high school and were poorly compensated. Parents employing the caregivers were relatively affluent and satisfied with in-home care. In-home caregivers showed differences from and similarities to caregivers in other child care situations.
