Early Childhood Research Quarterly, v16 n2 p191-208 2001
Examined associations between reasons for selecting care arrangements and type and quality of care received. Found that mothers who chose care based on quality were least likely to use relative-provided care and more likely to place children in higher quality care than others. Mothers selecting care because of preference for a particular type of care received higher quality care. (Author/KB)
