Family Child Care Finances and Their Effect on Quality and Incentives.
Helburn, Suzanne W.; Morris, John R.; Modigliani, Kathy
Early Childhood Research Quarterly, v17 n4 p512-38 2002
Data from the Family Child Care and Relative Care Study were used to construct a budget for paid family child caregivers and to examine financial incentives. Results indicated that income was low compared to female-dominated occupations for providers without their own children in care, but not much lower if providers cared for several and/or for their own preschoolers. Providers of better quality earned little more than others. (Author/KB)
