Examining associations among provider-family relationships, provider coping strategies, and family child care providers’ relationships with children


Family child care (FCC) providers are key suppliers of care and education to young children, yet they often experience stressors that can influence their ability to provide developmentally appropriate care. This research sought to understand the direct and indirect associations among FCC providers’ relationships with families they serve, relationships with children in care (measured via closeness and conflict), and individual well-being (measured via coping skills). In this study, 888 FCC providers completed questionnaires. (author abstract)
