How is Welfare Reform Influencing Child Care Supply and Parental Choices?: Monitoring Change in California, Connecticut and Florida
A project carried out as a three-state consortium consisting of the California Child Care Resource and Referral (CCR&R) Network, the University of California, Yale University, and the Florida Children's Forum, along with state- and community-level agencies and organizations. The project addresses five basic questions: (1) How is the availability of licensed child care changing as state governments in California and Florida seek to expand supply?; (2) What is the impact of these changes on the overall quality of licensed child care?; (3) How are welfare families in Connecticut selecting different types of care?; (4) How are these decisions related to children's early learning and development?; and (5) How do the contextual dynamics of child care supply within the community affect family decisions?
