Latinos' Use, Desire, and Type of Non-Parental Child Care Arrangements
Delgado, Enilda A.
Journal of Latinos and Education, v8 n2 p119-140 Apr 2009
Using the Early Childhood Program Participation Survey of the 2001 National Household Education Surveys Program, this study analyzes the use, desire, and type of non-parental care among Latinos in the United States. These nationally representative data indicate that when controlled for child and household characteristics, Latinos and non-Latino Whites do not differ in the use of care. However, among those parents who have exclusive care of their child, Latinos are significantly more likely to desire non-parental care if it is affordable and/or accessible. Latinos with non-parental care arrangements are significantly more likely to choose relative care compared to center-based care. (Contains 9 tables and 8 footnotes.)
