We build a unified view of children’s care experiences across all types of care to generate new insights into differences in early care experiences between children from families of different socioeconomic status. Our primary finding is that, accounting for both parental and nonparental care, children in families of lower socioeconomic status enter K–12 schooling having experienced substantially lower quality care in all domains during their first five years of life. Gaps are largest for the youngest children and then close as children age. (author abstract)
