This interview study assessed the perspectives of low-income single mothers on selecting child care and their parent involvement experiences in Head Start. Findings indicated that collaboration between mothers and Head Start teachers enhanced mothers' self-development and learning with resulting positive effects for children, adult development as parents, and mothers' individual development. Findings pose implications of parents' perspectives for teacher best practices. (Author/KB)
