Early Childhood Care: Relations with Family Characteristics and Preferred Care Characteristics.
Early, Diane M.; Burchinal, Margaret R.
Early Childhood Research Quarterly, v16 n4 p475-97 2001
Links family income, ethnicity, and child's age to child care characteristics. Finds that children from families with incomes at least twice the poverty threshold were more likely than others to be in nonparental care and spent more hours in care. Ethnicity, not poverty, related to relative-care use. Few income, ethnicity, or age differences emerge in care characteristics parents preferred. (Author/KB)
